MASONVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- Just after 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night, Kentucky State Police responded to a report of an accident with injuries on U.S. 231.

When they got to the scene, troopers found that a 17-year-old juvenile was operating her 2005 Nissan Altima. Troopers say she told them she fell asleep.

They say she was going southbound on 231. Troopers explain the juvenile left the roadway ran into a ditch.

The Masonville Fire Department and Yellow Ambulance removed the juvenile driver from the car and took her to Owensboro Health Hospital for treatment of injuries.

Troopers say U.S. 231 was restricted to one lane for about 45 minutes while emergency workers cleared the scene.

We do not have information on the juvenile's condition at this time.
