One person was sent to the hospital following a rollover accident Sunday morning, in Mills County. According to the Sheriff’s Department, 31-year old Carol Backus, of Shenandoah, was transported to the Montgomery County Memorial Hospital by Red Oak Rescue, following the accident on Highway 59, about one-half miles south of Emerson. Officials say Backus was traveling north on the highway at around 1-a.m. Sunday, when her 2005 Cadillac crossed the center line, and went out of control.

The car dropped off the shoulder and continued down a hill before rolling twice in an open field and coming to rest on its wheels 35-feet from a power substation.
