The sheriff’s office said Sandra Gix’s husband, Gerard, called 9-1-1 Monday evening after his wife had not returned home since her doctor’s appointment that morning.
Deputies said they found Sandra’s car on North Bank Road at about milepost five about 200 feet down a steep embankment. They say she was injured and couldn’t get up the bank.
Sandra was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Her condition is unknown at this time.
Investigators say she was wearing her seat belt and alcohol was not involved.
