A Merrill man was airlifted from the scene following a vehicle accident yesterday morning.
The single car left highway 107 near Swede Road in the town of Merrill. After it left the roadway, it struck a tree, overturning the vehicle.
The lone occupant, Angus S. Edyburn was entrapped in the vehicle when emergency personnel arrived. The Merrill Fire Department used the jaws of life to extricate the man with the help of the Merrill Fire Department and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
He was transported by Spirit Air to Aspirus Wausau Hospital for treatment of unlisted injuries.
The Sheriff’s Office believes that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
