Woman swerves to avoid dead animal in fog; car flips | News
A Madisonville woman was hurt early Tuesday morning when her car drove off the road in heavy fog.
Kentucky State Police say it happened on the Pennyrile Parkway, about six miles south of Sebree around 5:45 a.m.
Troopers say Marchell L. Serpa, 31, was operating a 2008 Mazda 3 southbound on the parkway in a heavy fog. She came upon dead animal in the roadway and swerved to avoid it, losing control of the car. It continued sideways off of the roadway and struck a guardrail. The vehicle flipped over the guardrail, traveled down an embankment and overturned at least once. It came to rest upright in a ditch.
Serpa was transported via ambulance to Baptist Health Madisonville for treatment. She was wearing a seatbelt. There were no passengers involved.
