SIOUX CITY | A woman rolled her sport utility vehicle after losing control on a gravel road Wednesday evening.
According to Sioux City Police, the unidentified driver traveled several hundred feet before being ejected from the SUV.
The accident took place on 28th Street, a popular shortcut between Lewis Boulevard and Outer Drive, around 6 p.m.
Police Sgt. Jim Cunningham said the woman was going westbound when she lost control. She then left the north side of the road, traveled several hundred feet and was ejected when the vehicle rolled onto its top.
Cunningham said the driver was conscious and was transported to a local hospital for injuries.
The extent of her injuries are unknown. She was the lone passenger in the vehicle.
Cunningham believes a passerby watched the vehicle enter the ditch and notified police.
A tow truck was able to go off the road to retrieve the vehicle.
The accident is under investigation.
"Luckily she is alive. It could have been a lot worse than it was especially since she was ejected from the vehicle," Cunningham said. "You always got to be careful especially when you are traveling at any speeds on gravel."
