Late Monday afternoon a southbound driver on Capital Boulevard is said to have crossed the median and then went of the side on the northbound lanes, narrowly missing a guard rail.
The car came to rest in the woods and Wake Forest Engine 1 and Wake Forest Ladder 1 arrived and secured the car to the guard rail to prevent it from sliding down the hill further.
In conjunction with the Wake Forest Police Department officers and EMS 12, the driver was successfully extracted from the car on a backboard and began his journey to the hospital.
The weather was particularly nasty as freezing rain stuck to everything around. Luckily the first motorist to stop and help was a medical staff member who quickly determined the driver was diabetic but conscious.
