A Lewisburg man was transported to Unity Medical Center in Manchester on Monday morning after falling off of the Little Duck River Bridge on the Murfreesboro Highway.
Roberto Jimenez, 40, told Manchester Police Officer Daniel Ray and Major Bill Sipe that he was attaching wire to the rebar and slipped and fell to the ground below. Officer Ray said that one of Jimenez’s obvious injuries was to his jaw.
When the officers arrived Jimenez was not wearing harness or helmet, the officers said they didn’t know if he was wearing those at the time of the accident or not. Personnel from the Coffee County Ambulance Service, Manchester Police and a deputy from the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department carried Jimenez up an embankment to a waiting ambulance.
