Two locals residents were at the right place at the right time Tuesday Morning.  Bishop area CHP public information officer Dennis Cleland is crediting the quick reaction of Jim Campbell and Nicole Eddy.

The scene played out just prior to 7am on Barlow Lane near the Sundland Indian Cemetery.  According to Cleland, a Bishop area resident drove his vehicle off the roadway, through a nearby fence.  The drivers name is being withheld.  While the incident remains under investigation, Cleland indicates the driver appeared to experience a medical ailment leading to the crash.

Cleland reports that Jim Campbell rushed to the scene and started CPR on the unconscious driver.  Nicole Eddy also rushed to help, assisting with CPR until EMS and Bishop Fire Department personnel arrived with a defibrillator.   The victim was transported to Bishop’s Northern Inyo Hospital and ultimately air lifted to Reno.
