A Sweeden woman was transported to the hospital this afternoon after she was involved in a single vehicle rollover crash in Brownsville.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Carolyn Meredith, (78) of Sweeden was driving southbound on KY HWY 259 N near Sandy Flat Road in a 2010 Hyundai Accent. A sheriff's deputy said that a witness reported the driver slammed on the brakes for an unknown reason which caused the vehicle to become out of control. The vehicle then exited the left side of the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its top on a rocky embankment.
Mrs. Meredith was extricated from the vehicle by Edmonson County JAWS. She was transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green by Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries. Law enforcement said she was wearing her seat belt at the time of the accident.
Also responding to the scene were the Brownsville, Kyrock, and Bear Creek Fire Departments. The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office was in charge of the investigation.
