Warren County Sheriff’s Deputies, Rescue, Bovina Chief Kennedy, Chuck Tate and Fire Medic 30 worked to aid the driver as well as perform a search of the surrounding wooded areas along the stretch of roadway to look for anyone that may have been ejected during the crash. The FLIR device(a heatseeker) was used in the search. No one was found near the accident scene that stretched well over 100 yards.
