can you believe it! this is Tylers truck.
BREAKING: missing Teen Tyler Campbell Found Alive Off I-65 North
Great news to report — Tyler Campbell, the 19-year-old who was reported missing in Lincoln County over the weekend, has been found alive. He is okay.
Campbell was found around 2 p.m. Tuesday off Interstate 65 North, just south of the Tennessee line. He has a broken leg and an injured shoulder, but is in good spirits.
Campbell had been reported missing late Saturday night, after not returning home following a church function. Lincoln County Sheriff Murray Blackwelder said Campbell ran off the road in his truck and went down a ravine. The truck flipped, as you can see in the pictures with this story: Campbell was stuck there, injured.
Campbell was just able to get up the ravine Tuesday, and climbed up, crawled under a guard rail and flagged down a passing driver. The driver immediately called 911. Campbell asked for water and borrowed a phone from Ardmore firefighters so he could call his parents to let them know he was alive.
Campbell had apparently tried to climb up the ravine once before in the last few days, but slid back down. He also said he heard the sirens rushing to the scene of an 18-wheeler wreck near Ardmore early Monday morning. It was close to where he was, and Campbell said he called for help as loudly as he could, but no one heard him.
Paramedics took Campbell to Huntsville Hospital for treatment.
Thanks SparkBuddies for your prayers and well wishes for this young man and his family.
