A pick-up truck collided with another vehicle in the intersection of State Route 16 and 5 in Grantsville today, causing the driver to lose control, driving through the parking lot of the former Smith's Service Station and plunging into a deep ravine.

Jim Goodrich, 55, was taken by Minnie Hamilton ambulance to Minnie Hamilton Health System for evaluation and treatment from what was reported as minor injuries.

Goodrich managed to climb up from the deep hole, with some assistance, before the ambulance arrived.

The Goodrich vehicle, was reportedly traveling west on Rt. 5, struck a vehicle driven by Robert Bonar, who was traveling south on Rt. 16 at the Bernard Bell Bridge. Bonar was reportedly uninjured.

Furr's Wrecker Service had a serious challenge pulling the truck from the very deep ravine.

The vehicle knocked down a mailbox.

The woman was taken to Minnie Hamilton Health System by Calhoun EMS.
