A medical condition may be the cause of a single-vehicle accident shortly before noon Tuesday on Highway 231, south of West Baddour Parkway.
The accident occurred about 11:56 a.m. Lebanon Police Officer Robert Bates said the driver of the vehicle, Judy Gunter of Lebanon, was traveling southbound on Hwy. 231 in a 2005 four-door Mercedes when she veered off the roadway and struck a light pole.
Bates said the car spun around and ended up on its side. Lebanon Fire Department and Wilson Emergency Management Agency responded and worked to extricate Gunter from the vehicle.
Bates said Gunter was transported to University Medical Center by WEMA with minor injuries. She was wearing her seat belt.
A medical condition may have caused Gunter to black out, Bates said, because “She did not remember any of the accident at all.”
Witnesses, including the driver of a vehicle who was behind her, said her driving was fine prior to the accident. “They said she just veered off the roadway and struck a light pole,” Bates said.
