The overturned vehicle blocked both lanes of KY 181.
Ms. Johnson was not injured. She was wearing a seatbelt. There were no passengers involved.
Trooper Craig Engler investigated the collision. Trooper Jonathan Ward, the Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Department, the Bremen Volunteer Fire Department, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet assisted at the scene.
