In a report issued this week, the Iowa State Patrol says a Council Bluffs woman suffered “incapacitating” injuries last Friday afternoon, during a crash on northbound Interstate 29, near Crescent. Officials say 22-year old Ashley Jo Hogsett, of Council Bluffs, was transported to the University of Nebraska Medical Center by Crescent Rescue, after the 1993 Buick Regal she was driving went off the road, traveled down an embankment and began to rollover. The car continued to roll across Joslin Avenue before coming to rest in the east ditch. Officials say she was wearing her seat belt.

The Patrol says the woman was able to exit the vehicle on her own, but was laying on the ground when a Trooper arrived on the scene about five-minutes later. Hogsett told the Trooper that when other cars started coming around her vehicle, she panicked. The woman could not remember anything that happened after that.

The car was totalled in the crash. No citations were issued.
