The Grayson County Sheriff and Leitchfield FIre Departments responded to a single-car accident in the 6000 block of Shrewsbury Road on Friday morning about 12:45.
A white Dodge Neon, driven by Shannon Slattery of Leitchfield, was driving north on Shrewsbury Road when Slattery thinks she fell asleep at the wheel. Her vehicle drifted into the southbound lane before swerving, in a curve at 6169 Shrewsbury, off the road and into a ditch, where her car spun into a southerly facing direction. The Dodge impacted a tree as it slid backwards, turning the car on its side.
Slattery was trapped in the car before Deputy Joey Beasley arrived on the scene and was able to open the driver’s side door, enabling Slattery to exit the vehicle. She was unhurt in the wreck, and declined medical transport.
