Woman transported to hospital after rollover accident in downtown Dexter
A woman was transported to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after her vehicle rolled over following a traffic crash in downtown Dexter, according to fire department officials.
The Dexter Area Fire Department responded to the intersection of Central Avenue and Fifth Street for a rollover accident causing minor injuries at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, officials said. The woman was driving on Fifth Street across Central Avenue when her car was clipped by another vehicle, officials said.
The car came to rest on its side and the woman managed to crawl out of the car’s window under her own power, according to officials. The man driving the other vehicle was not injured.
The construction work going on in the area may have caused some confusion before the crash, and the woman drove out in front of the other vehicle, officials said. A Main Street resurfacing project between Jeffords and Baker began Tuesday.
The woman was transported by Huron Valley Ambulance to the Chelsea Community Hospital, according to fire officials.
