Woman injured in Friday crash

Kentucky State Police investigated a single-vehicle, injury-collision that occurred on US 60 East of Marion Friday night during heavy rainfall.

The preliminary investigation revealed Kelly N. Schaeffer, 20, of Murray was operating her 1998 Ford Explorer eastbound when the vehicle began to hydroplane off onto the left shoulder of the roadway.  The vehicle left the highway and dropped down into the ditch on the north side causing it to overturn toward the passenger side.  The vehicle rolled down the north ditch where it came to final rest.

The driver was the only occupant and was transported by a passer-by to the Crittenden Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the collision.

Crittenden County Rescue Squad and the Marion Police Department assisted with the investigation.
