A Mt. Croghan, S.C., woman was seriously injured Tuesday morning when her car overturned at least twice after an accident on N.C. 742 South in Anson County.
According to Trooper K.J. Hower with the N.C. Highway Patrol, Jakia McKay, 29, of Mt. Croghan, S.C., was traveling north on N.C. 742 South when she lost control of her vehicle coming out of a curve, ran off the road to the right, hit an embankment, hit another ditch, then hit a pole and flipped at least two or three times.
McKay was thrown from the vehicle and sustained serious injuries. She was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. She was transported to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, Hower said, where she underwent surgery Tuesday.
“The injuries were not life threatening, but they were serious,” he said.
McKay was driving at an estimated speed of 70-75 mph at the time of the accident, Hower said, and was charged with not wearing a seat belt and reckless driving.
