PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - A Paducah woman was injured after she reportedly had to leave the road to avoid hitting other vehicles.

It happened around 4:45 p.m. on Benton Road in McCracken County.

Deputies say Tiffanty Clouatre, 34 of Paducah, told them she was driving north on Benton Road just before Tyree when she saw two cars in front of her coming to a stop to make a left turn.  Clouatre said she did not see any brake lights or turn signals and had to leave the roadway to avoid collision with other vehicles.

Her car then hit a fence and fence post.  Clouatre complained of minor injuries and stated she would drive herself to Baptist of Paducah.

Clouatre's vehicle sustained minor/moderate damage but was able to be driven.  Clouatre had called to report the single vehicle collision from someone's residence.  Deputies followed Clouatre back to the scene to investigate the crash.
