MATHISTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Carroll County woman escaped serious injury in a one-vehicle accident in Webster County Tuesday morning.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol was called to the scene of the accident around 10 a.m. on Highway 82 about one mile east of Highway 763 in Webster County.

An MHP spokesperson says Sylvia Carpenter, 65, of Carrollton was traveling east on the highway when she lost control and the vehicle rolled over into the highway.

Carpenter was transported to the OCH-Regional Medical Center in Starkville with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities shutdown the highway for about a half hour while the wreckage was cleared.

The accident remains under investigation.
