One person was flown to a hospital early Tuesday morning after a one-car accident on Pyatt Cutler Road just west of Coyote Road in Perry County.

A Pinckneyville fire official said there was another person in the vehicle; the extent of that person’s injuries, if any, was not immediately known. Initial reports indicated the vehicle rolled over, but officials did not have other details.

Pinckneyville Fire crews responded to the accident along with Pinckneyville Ambulance, ARCH and the Perry County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were still investigating the accident at 8:45 a.m. and officials said they would release more information later Tuesday.
