A Jamestown woman was critically injured in a single vehicle wreck Tuesday night near the Lakewood Country Club.
Deputy Sheriff Nick Bertram said 43-year-old Kelly Montenegro was southbound on Hales Highway when the 2003 Dodge pickup she was driving dropped off the right shoulder of the roadway when she over-corrected, lost control of her truck, and then left the roadway and struck a guide-wire of a utility pole, flipping the vehicle several times.
Montenegro was partially ejected from the vehicle and it took emergency personnel with the Jamestown Fire Department and Russell County EMS several minutes to pull her from the wreck. She was taken by ambulance to the Russell County Hospital for initial treatment and later transferred by ambulance to University Hospital in Louisville. Inclement weather kept emergency helicopters from responding to the scene, the hospital or the local airport.
The wreck happened around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday and was investigated by Russell County Deputy Sheriff Nick Bertram.
