A 17-year-old Arnoldsburg youth was seriously injured this evening when his car left Altizer Rd., went over an embankment and struck a tree.

The youth reportedly suffered head trauma and other injuries.

Calhoun EMS transported the patient by land to Wallback, where he was transfered to a HealthNet chopper, then taken to Charleston Area Medical Center. The chopper was not immediately available.

Arnoldsburg firemen used the Jaws of Life to remove the victim.

Roane County emergency services also responded for back-up following the 911 call at 4:41 p.m.

Details will follow.
