The Page County Sheriff’s Office says two women from Red Oak were injured during a rollover crash Monday evening, near Shenandoah. Sheriff Lyle Palmer reports 45-year old Katrina Flick, a passenger in a 1996 Ford Explorer driven by 19-year old Jennifer Mulligan, suffered incapacitating injuries, and was transported by Life Net helicopter to an Omaha trauma center after being extricated from the vehicle by mechanical means.  The crash happened at around 5:20-p.m., Monday.

Palmer says Mulligan and Flick were traveling south on U-S Highway 59, when the SUV went off onto the shoulder of the road. Mulligan over-corrected, causing the to cross the highway and roll over, coming to rest on its wheels. Mulligan suffered non-incapacitating injuries, and was transported by ambulance to the Shenandoah Hospital. Both women were wearing their seat belts.

The crash totaled the Explorer. The Sheriff’s report did not indicate if any citations were issued.
