(Whitewater Township, Oh.) – Police say a woman was not wearing her seatbelt and was thrown from her car during a wreck on Kilby Road Wednesday afternoon.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says Tracy Valentino, 41, of Cleves, was driving on the 4500 block of Kilby Road in Whitewater Township around 2:00.
Valentino’s vehicle traveled off the right side of the road hitting a raised curb. She overcorrected and drove to the left across a double yellow line, off the left side of the road, down a slight embankment and through a metal security fence. The vehicle stopped nearly 300 feet beyond the fence in an open field.
The woman suffered serious, but not life threatening injuries. She was first taken to Good Samaritan West Hospital, then transferred by Aircare to University Hospital in Cincinnati.
The crash is still under investigation. Alcohol or drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash.
