  • Mt. Eden man survives wreck on Glensboro Road

    A Mt. Eden man sustained what appeared to be minor injuries when the pickup truck he was driving went off Glensboro Road, rolled at least once and ended up blocking both lanes of traffic.

    Dewight Shular, 73, of Murphy Lane was apparently headed west when his pickup swerved into the ditch line, skimmed several trees and went back into the road.

    The wreck occurred near 3415 Mt. Eden Road.

    Shular, who appeared to have a small trickle of blood coming down his left cheek, was otherwise OK after being trapped in the pickup for about 45 minutes.

    A woman had to be rescued from a residence this morning on Bridge Hill Road in Glensboro after the Salt River spilled its banks and left the home surrounded by water.
