Police say seatbelts helped a woman and her six-year-old nephew escaped serious injuries after their car flipped on its roof after hitting a trailer that detached from a truck Tuesday morning.
The accident happened at about 10 a.m. on Versailles Road near New Circle Road. Police say Mary Pochiba's car went airborne after hitting the trailer, which came loose from the back of a truck hauling it in the opposite direction on Versailles Road. Officers say Pochiba didn't have time to miss the oncoming trailer.
Pochiba, 45, is listed in fair condition at UK Hospital tonight. Her nephew was not hurt.
The truck's driver, Melvin Weber of Versailles, may be cited in the accident.
