The Christian County Sheriff's Office responded to a one vehicle accident on 2080 North Road earlier this week.

According to the accident report, on Monday, a vehicle driven by Natasha R. Robinson of Springfield was headed south on 2080 North Road when she drove onto the shoulder of the roadway when she over-corrected her vehicle causing it to skid sideways.

Robinson's vehicle slid sideways for an approximate 65-feet before leaving the roadway and striking the ditch, causing it to overturn one complete rotation.

While in rotation, the car seat located in the passenger seat directly behind the driver was fully ejected from the vehicle. The car seat landed approximately 18-feet away from where the vehicle came to a stop.

Robinson, along with a front seat passenger and the baby in the car seat, was taken to St. John's Hospital in Springfield for treatment of minor injuries.
