Woman injured in U.S. 641 wreck

Kentucky State Police investigated a single-vehicle, injury collision that occurred today on U.S. 641 at Weldon Road, about 2 miles south of Marion. The accident occurred just before noon on a rain-slicked roadway.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Gloria Tidwell, 62, of Marion was operating a 2001 Ford pickup northbound on U.S. 641 when she lost control on the wet road. The vehicle exited the right side of the roadway and struck a concrete culvert. It came to rest upright, off the road.

Tidwell, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported via ambulance to the Crittenden Health Systems for treatment. There were no passengers involved.

Trooper First Class Darron Holliman investigated the collision. A Crittenden County constable and Crittenden County EMS assisted at the scene.
