Car wedged under tractor-trailer in Boone Co.
BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC) -- An accident pins a car underneath a tractor-trailer on I-275 in Boone County Thursday morning.
The Boone County Sheriff's Office says Marilyn Thielmann, of Moores Hill, was driving in the left lane on westbound 275, near the Petersburg Road exit, when she lost control. Her Chevy Cavalier became lodged under the real axles of the tractor trailer, traveling in the left lane. It's estimated her car was dragged more than one thousand feet, before the tractor-trailer was able to safely come to a stop.
The sheriff's office says quick thinking by the tractor-trailer driver likely saved Thielmann's life. Had he slammed on the brakes, the wheels would have likely run over her car.
Thielman was taken to the hospital with only minor injuries.
