The Kentucky State Police is investigating a single vehicle, injury-collision that occurred on US 60 East of Marion, in Crittenden County.

The preliminary investigation revealed Kelly N. Schaeffer, 20, of Murray, KY was operating her 1998 Ford Explorer eastbound on US 60 East, in a heavy rain, when her vehicle began to hydroplane off onto the left shoulder of the roadway. The vehicle left the roadway 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 facing back westbound.

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

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