A northeast Missouri woman was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning after rescue crews freed her from her upside down car.

The one-car rollover crash happened around 10 a.m. on Adair County Route J, one-and-a-half miles south of Willmathsville, Missouri.

Cpl. Brent Mason with the Missouri State Highway Patrol told KTVO at the scene that a car driven by Peggy Goodin, 60, of Downing, was southbound when she swerved to miss a deer in the roadway.

Goodin's car ran off the opposite side of the roadway and overturned at least twice before coming to rest on its top in a ditch.

Goodin suffered moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to Northeast Regional Medical Center for treatment.

She was conscious and alert and told the state trooper that she was buckled up when the crash happened.

No other cars were involved.

Route J was shut down in both directions until the scene was cleared.
