Car tumbles down cliff in Chattanooga Friday morning

Chattanooga Police say three people were hurt after an accident on East 29th Street early Friday morning near the Bachman Tunnel.

Police say a Kia Optima was traveling east on Ringgold Road when it came through the Bachman Tunnels and to a roundabout. It then bounced off the roundabout, over a guard rail, and then down a 50 yard embankment.

Police say the front passenger was transported in critical condition. The driver and rear passenger were transported for minor injuries.

Bachman Tunnel was closed for a couple hours at Westside Drive and East 29th Street. It reopened shortly before 7 a.m.

Brandon Evans reports several people were taken to the hospital. We're working to find out how many, and the extent of their injuries.

Crews used a cable to get the car up off the cliff.

Depend on us to bring you updates as they become available.
