An Irwin woman was injured early Friday morning during a rollover accident about six-miles east of Irwin. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Department says 52-year old Debra Jayne Rasmussen Krause was transported to the hospital in Manning, following the crash. A report on her condition is not available.

The accident happened at around 12:45-a.m. Friday, on 150th Street, near Yellowwood Road. Authorities say the woman was traveling west on 150th Street, when her 2006 Ford F-250 crossed the centerline, went out of control, and entered a ditch before it hit an embankment and flipped onto its side.

Rasmussen-Krause was trapped in the pickup, until being freed by Irwin Fire and Rescue. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $16,000. The accident remains under investigation.
