Person flees scene of rollover accident on Reservation

There is a rollover accident on Council House Road on the Tonawanda Indian Reservation.

There was initially a report of a serious injury and Mercy Flight was being dispatched.

There is also a report that a person has fled from the scene.

Alabama Fire and Mercy EMS are responding.

UPDATE: A first responder says there is nobody in the vehicle.

I dont understand, I dont know how many times i have read these reports with absoutly no details,Was it a truck was it a car and was it blue or black or was it a ford or chevy ect. ect,so here I sit and i wonder gee I hope it is not my brother beacuse he lives on the rez or I hope it was not so and so ,I mean why bother posting any thing if you aren;t going to give any kind of details at all. I just dont get it. So something rolled over and it was a serious injury but the person fled so how do you know this? and im not so sure a person can run if they are seriously injured. I just dont know .

Jeanne, most of these posts are what Howard here's over the police/fire scanner, the details he posts are the details he hears, the usually don't say "a blue Ford truck" over the scanner. Once more information is given, more is revealed. I think Howard posts info like this because if people see emergency vehicles going here or there , or if you live in a town and here the fire whistle go off, people want to know what is going on. Like I said, most of the time, once more information becomes available it is updated. Police/fire monitors are fairly inexpensive, if you had one you could listen for yourself (but then you would go crazy every time you heard about an accident!!)

Howard, It seems to me almost every accident victim has to be airlifted via mercy flight or mercy flight has atleast been called but can't land due to the conditions. I don't remember mercy flight being used nearly as much as in years past. Is it because they are owned by the same company as the ambulance service now? Doesn't mercy flight cost a lot? It would be interesting to know the numbers from recent years of accidents vs mercy flight calls. Don't get me wrong I'm grateful that we have the service and that it is needed in some situations, just not sure if as many as they are being used. Such as the story above, who dispatched them if there wasn't even a victim to be found? Just a thought.......
