McCracken County officials responded to a crash Thursday afternoon that sent one woman to the hospital.

On November 19, 2015 at approximately 1:49 pm, deputies were dispatched to an injury accident at the intersection of the new Ledbetter Bridge and US62. 

Investigation showed that Tania Hopkins, 31, of Ledbetter, was driving south, attempting to make a right turn onto US62 westbound. 

Hopkins says she wasn't able to place the manual shift into 1st or 2nd gear for unknown reasons. 

She was, however, able to enter 3rd gear. 

Hopkins says when she started to let off the clutch, the vehicle jerked and she lost control. 

She traveled over US62 and struck a Jackson Purchase utility pole. 

Hopkins was transported to a local hospital for non-incapacitating injuries. 

Reidland-Farley FD and Affordable Towing assisted at the scene.
