An accident Wednesday resulted in a woman being airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center.

The Watauga Democrat reports the accident happened around 12:40 in the Zionville area.

According to the report, a Chevy Blazer going north on 421 near Brown Road drifted off the side of the road, hit a culvert and flipped multiple times, ending up more than 100 feet off the road.

State Highway Patrol Trooper T.B. Hendrix indicated a witness said the woman was going around 50 to 55 miles an hour, which is the speed limit there, but did not know what caused the vehicle to drift.

The driver had to be extracted and taken by Watauga Medics ambulance to the Zionville Fire Department to meet the Wings Air Rescue helicopter.
