A 47 year old woman was airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital after a one car traffic accident late Thursday night.

Trooper Brian Raymond of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Carrolyn L. Parker-Bullington who claims to live on a houseboat at Cove Hollow Marina was driving south on Dale Ridge Road in a 1998 Chevy Metro when she failed to negotiate a curve, ran off the roadway, struck an embankment, and flipped over. A passing motorist spotted the wreck and reported it around 11:40 p.m.

Bullington was transported by DeKalb EMS to a helicopter landing zone near the entrance of Edgar Evins State Park on Wolf Creek Road. She was airlifted by a Life Force helicopter ambulance and flown to Vanderbilt Hospital. Bullington was still hospitalized in stable condition Friday.

Others on the scene included the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department and the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.
