Daily staff report
A 17-year-old girl was released from the hospital within hours after her 2005 Hyundai Elantra rolled over at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday on Stokes Airport Road just south of Va. 618, state police said.
State police Sgt. F.L. (Les) Tyler said Wednesday the victim was airlifted to Winchester Medical Center where she was treated and released shortly after 6 p.m.
Tyler said the victim was traveling north on Stokes Airport Road when she ran off the left side of the road on a curve, went over an embankment and overturned. Tyler said the driver was ejected and issued citations for reckless driving and failure to wear a seat belt.
Trooper A.E. Clark investigated the accident with assistance from the Warren County Sheriff's Office, Tyler said.
