Injury in Wednesday night Shelby County car crash

A woman was transported to an Indianapolis hospital from a Shelby County car accident Wednesday.


Courtney Byrd, 22, of Osgood, was traveling southbound on County Road 250 East just south of Michigan Road in the 8:00 pm hour.  Byrd's passenger side tires went off the road.  She tried to bring the car back onto the roadway and overcorrected.  The car began to spin until the tires caught traction and the 2006 Buick Lucernce rolled several times.  It came to rest, inverted, after striking a utility pole.


Byrd was trapped inside and was extricated by the Shelbyville Fire Department.
