COLUMBIA — A woman was injured in a single-car accident while traveling southbound on U.S. 63 near the 3800 block of Ponderosa Street sometime after 5 p.m. Thursday.
The extent of the woman's injuries was not known. There were no passengers.
Columbia Police Officer Chad Craig said the GM Acadia went over the edge of U.S. 63, got caught on a concrete part of a ditch at the bottom of a low hill and flipped. Craig said he thinks the car only flipped once, based on its condition.
The windshield was smashed, and the passenger's side of the car was dented. The car was balanced upside down on either side of the ditch. Glass and dirt splattered across Ponderosa Street beside the ditch.
The Columbia Fire Department, University Hospital Ambulance Service and Boone County Fire Protection District responded and took the woman away on a stretcher. She was transported to University Hospital.
There was no damage done to property other than the car, Craig said.
Both of the side airbags deployed, but neither of the front airbags deployed, Craig said.
