A 27-year-old Overland Park woman was injured Tuesday night after she was ejected from a vehicle near De Soto on Kansas Highway 10, a Johnson County Sheriff’s spokesman said.
Pamela Sherrell who was headed west at 9 p.m. near the Kill Creek Road exit drifted off the highway onto the outside shoulder, when she over-corrected and lost control of her vehicle, Master Deputy Tom Erickson said. The vehicle went into the median and struck a guardrail.
Erickson said Sherrell was then thrown from the vehicle. First responders found her at the scene underneath the vehicle, but her injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, he said.
She was taken to an area hospital by ground ambulance. Sheriff’s officers are still investigating the cause of the crash, Erickson said Wednesday morning. No other vehicle were involved.
