A Warren County woman was injured in a one car accident Thursday morning on Highway 56 at the DeKalb-Warren County line.

Trooper Allen England of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says 34 year old Kimberly Stembridge of Smartt, Tennessee was driving south in a 2005 Saturn Ion when she failed to maintain the lane of travel, entered a ditch on the west side of the road, struck a driveway culvert, and overturned. The car then slid on it's top several feet back into the highway.

Trooper England says Stembridge, who was wearing her seatbelt, was taken by DeKalb EMS to River Park Hospital in McMinnville to be treated for minor injuries.

He says both lanes of the highway were shut down for approximately 45 minutes during the investigation and cleanup.

Trooper England was assisted by Trooper Dewaine Jennings and Sergeant Billy Prater of the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Others on the scene were officers of the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department, DeKalb EMS, and members of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department.
