Man hurt from fall into open storm drain

A man was taken to EASTAR Health System with non life-threatening injuries Wednesday after falling into an uncovered storm drain, fire officials said.

At 11:45 a.m., the fire department was sent to assist Sonny Carter at Third and Hill streets. Byron Moore, assistant fire chief, said Carter stepped into a storm drain because there was no cover on it.

“He dropped 10 feet and cut his foot,” Moore said.

Firefighters lowered a ladder to Carter.

On both sides of Third Street, tall grass makes visibility low for anyone using the sidewalk. An area was fenced off, and a hole was covered with a construction barrel on Wednesday evening.

Carter was treated at EASTAR and released.
