WILMINGTON — One woman was taken to Clinton Memorial Hospital after the vehicle she drove struck a cement culvert, went airborne and was impaled by four fence posts.

Tiffany Miller, of Wilmington, initially refused treatment, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Kenneth Cottrell.

Cottrell said Miller drove her Toyota Camry off the right side of State Route 730 near Wilmington, struck a cement culvert, went 30 feet in the air, took out 30 feet of fencing and came to rest 15 feet from the side of the road.

Cottrell said the Camry was impaled with four fence posts when it came to rest. Those same posts took out the front and rear windshields.

Visibly, Miller had minor scratches on her, according to Cottrell.

Miller was not cited for traffic violations at press time, and the investigation into the cause of the accident continues.
