Emergency services and state troopers responded to a single motor vehicle accident on Friday near 6890 Newland Rd. in Richmond County.
The driver was transported via helicopter to Mary Washington Hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries, emergency workers said.
According to Virginia State Police Senior Trooper O.B. Moody, 48-year-old Terry Lynn Sprouse, of Oak Grove Road, was navigating her dark blue 2002 Mitsubishi convertible to the left when she ran off the road to the right.
Moody said she over-corrected across the center line before running off the road to the left; she then over-corrected to the right and the car began to yaw. The car ran off the road and overturned down in the embankment, resting upside down when emergency responders arrived.
Moody said that the roof was up on the convertible, but that it had collapsed.
Emergency medical technicians freed Sprouse from the vehicle. Moody said she was conscious and complaining of leg pain. Sprouse was flown from the accident by helicopter to Mary Washington Hospital.
