Woman injured in rollover accident on I-70 Drive

COLUMBIA — A woman was sent to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries Friday morning after her vehicle rolled over on I-70 Drive.

Brennan Wenning, 29, was turning left from Cynthia Drive onto I-70 Drive Northeast when she noticed another car coming toward her. She swerved to avoid it, drove into the wrong lane of traffic and slid into a ditch, said Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer.

Wenning's 1998 Chevy Blazer rolled over and ended up on its side in the ditch. It was towed from the scene, and Wenning as taken to University Hospital by ambulance.

Emergency responders were called to the accident at 6:51 a.m., said Columbia Fire Department Battalion Chief James Weaver.

It took 15 minutes for responders to remove the driver from her car, Weaver said.

There were no passengers in the car, and no one else was hurt. No other cars were involved in the accident.

Wenning was wearing her seat belt at the time of the accident, and no alcohol was involved, Stroer said.
