Five people were injured Friday when a woman rushing a man to the hospital crashed and overturned.
“It’s a wonder no one was killed,” said highway patrolman Donnie Clark, noting only one victim was wearing a seatbelt.
Injured was the driver of the 2010 Chevy Cobalt, Jennifer Jones, 28, who was flown to Erlanger Medical Center by LifeForce helicopter after being extricated from the wreckage. Her front-seat passenger, James G. Warner Jr., 47, who was suffering from a seizure prompting the rush to the hospital, was also airlifted from the scene.
Backseat passengers, Jonathan Jones, 10, and Emily Jones, 3, and Wade Jones, 3, were also treated for injuries but have been released.
The wreck happened on West Green Hill Road as Jones was rushing Warner to the hospital due to his seizure. Investigators say Jones lost control of the vehicle while traveling at a high rate of speed and veered off the left shoulder before overcorrecting and then crossing the highway where the vehicle struck a fence. The car then rolled onto its side and struck a large tree with its roof before coming to rest on its side in a field.
