CLEVELAND - Remarkably, no one was hurt in a two-vehicle accident in Cleveland Wednesday that sent one vehicle into a branch upside down.

The accident was dispatched to emergency personnel just before noon Wednesday at 826 N. Main St., Cleveland.

Cleveland police investigated the accident and complete details are not available.

According to driver comments, the female driver of a Chevrolet Trailblazer was leaving Macís Chevron and a Ford Ranger pickup was traveling north on Highway 129 with its right turn signal light on. The Trailblazer pulled into the path of the pickup truck.

Following impact, the Trailblazer spun around and ended up in the small stream. Both drivers were checked out by White County Emergency Medical Services personnel and refused transport to the hospital.

As required, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division was called because of fluid leaking into the stream. White County fire personnel placed polypropylene skin sump skimmers devices (PIGs) downstream to help soak up fluids that leaked from the vehicle.

EPD did not respond because of the small quantity of fluids leaking and their quick containment.
