Men help rescue woman after early morning accident

Two good Samaritans came to the aid of a woman pinned under her car following a single-vehicle accident on Adams-Gay Road Monday morning.


A fireman picks up one of the tools used to extract Ruby Lee Nunn from under her car.

Ruby Lee Nunn, 39, of Adams Chapel Road, was northbound on Adams Chapel Road when the Toyota Tercel she was driving left the roadway near a curve a half mile north of the Radford-Gay -- Adams Chapel Road intersection.

At close to 6:05 a.m. Mitch Skavarca and Alan Kennedy were on their way to work at Augusta Newsprint when they noticed the car some 15 yards off the roadway leaning against a tree.

"I saw some skid marks in the road and just happened to see the car in the ditch," said Mr. Skarvaca. "We went up the road and came back and noticed her laying under the car. She was able to talk."

Mr. Skarvaca said he went up the road and alerted Jason Powell, a volunteer with Pea Ridge Fire Department. Mr. Powell then called 911.

Mr. Kennedy said he tried to comfort Ms. Nunn.

"I got to her and she was hollering 'Help! Help!' and I told her there was someone with her now. She said she had been there a few hours," he said.

An acquaintance that came to the scene said the woman had left their home around 3 a.m.

The McDuffie County Rescue Squad responded along with McDuffie County Fire Service personnel and workers used the Hurst Tool to free the victim.

An AirMed helicopter landed in a grassy field a quarter-mile from the crash site and transported Ms. Nunn to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital. She was listed in good condition there Monday afternoon, according to hospital spokesperson Danielle Wong.
