Driver in rollover accident able to walk away from scene
BOONE COUNTY - The Boone County Fire Department was dispatched at 10:44 a.m. Wednesday after a report of a rollover accident into a ravine on Brown Station Road near Route B.
Assistant Chief at Boone County Fire Department Gale Blomenkamp said the driver was not injured severely and was able to walk away from the scene.
"According to State Patrol, traffic had slowed in front of her so, in an effort to avoid a collision on the highway, she lost control and advanced off the roadway," Blomenkamp said.
Blomenkamp said there was a driver behind the woman who saw the accident and was able to help her and call 911.
"Initially, the report was that she was trapped," Blomenkamp said. "So really it was a matter of us going down there and popping the door."
The driver was transported to University Hospital for observations.
