Two people were injured last Thursday night when a car plunged down an embankment off River Road in New Market and struck a tree, troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol reported.

New Market Volunteer firefighters and paramedics with the Jefferson County Emergency Medical Service climbed down the steep embankment to a drainage area near the Holston River to bring the driver and passenger to an ambulance, said Capt. Sammy Solomon of the fire department.
