Driver crashes into tree along Watterson Expressway

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One person was injured after a single-vehicle crash on the Watterson Expressway near the I-64 eastbound ramp Tuesday.

A woman who witnessed the crash says she saw the car veer off the road, go airborne, and crash into a wooded area, but she wasn't sure what caused the crash, although severe weather was moving through the area at the time.

"No I don't think, she probably hit the ground because I saw her flying through the air, so it could have been the wind," said Jennifer O'Bryan. 

Emergency crews had to peel the roof off the car to rescue the driver. No word yet on their identity or condition.
