No one was injured after an SUV flipped into a gulley in Evans Tuesday morning.
Samuel Eugene Tyson Jr., 63, of Williams Street in Augusta, was driving his Chevrolet Tahoe on a private road next to Brown’s Feed and Seed in Evans at about 8:40 a.m. The right tires hit the soft, unstable dirt on the edge of the road. The shoulder gave way and the Tahoe rolled down the embankment, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Deputy Keith Warner.
Tyson called 911 from inside the overturned vehicle. Emergency personnel helped him and his passenger – Cheryl McCarthy Cheek, 58, of Forest Crossing in Martinez – climb out of the vehicle and up the embankment. Cheek wasn’t injured and Tyson suffered only a small bump on his head.
