LIVINGSTON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A Smithland woman and a 2-year-old were injured in a rollover crash Friday afternoon in Livingston County, Kentucky.

After overcorrecting several times, the car went down an embankment and overturned a number of times throwing Owens, who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, out the side window of the car. A 2-year-old child was restrained in a child safety seat in the back of the car.

The car came to a rest on its top in a field.

Owens was able to make her way to the car and get the child out of the safety seat.

According to police, Owens received a number of non-incapacitating injuries during the collision. The child was taken to an area hospital for non-apparent but possible injuries.
