GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, a single car crash on Monday sent a Missouri girl to the hospital.
The sheriff says at about 10 a.m. Mallory Fritz, 19, of Kennett, Mo. was driving her 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser eastbound on KY 94 East between the intersections of KY 303 and High Road. He says Fritz was driving from Kennett to Murray State University and apparently fell asleep at the wheel and drove off the right side of the road.
According to Redmon, the car hit a mailbox, jumped a creek and then hit a tree and earthen embankment. He says the car caught fire after hitting the tree and embankment.
The sheriff says Fritz was helped out of the car by local resident Terry McDermitt.
The Cuba and Sedalia Volunteer Fire Departments were both called to extinguish the fire.
