A dispatcher with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office was injured on Sunday after she swerved to avoid striking a deer and was ejected from her vehicle.
Capt. Jeff Saunders said personnel from the sheriff’s office, Dublin Fire Department and Regional Emergency Medical Services responded at 7:05 p.m. on Sunday to U.S. 11 north, near the Pulaski Country Club, for a single-vehicle crash.
Autumn Duncan, 34, of Dublin was driving a 2001 Ford Explorer when she swerved to miss hitting a deer and ran off the road, causing her vehicle to roll several times. Duncan, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, Saunders said.
Duncan was taken to LewisGale Hospital Pulaski and later flown to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital with serious injuries, Saunders said. Hospital spokesman Eric Earnhart said Tuesday that Duncan is listed in good condition.
Saunders said Duncan had just left work when the wreck occurred. The incident is under investigation by the sheriff’s office.
