A Holmes Mill teenager was injured in accident Friday morning on KY 38.
Lauren Shackleford, 17, was driving west when she lost control of her 1999 Ford Escort around 7:30 a.m.
According to Kentucky State Police Trooper Jimmy Halcomb, Shackleford's vehicle flipped and came to rest on its top, pinning her underneath.
Shackleford's mother, Lora, said her daughter's wreck was caused by wet road conditions.
"She wasn't going but about 30 or 35 miles an hour," she said. "And I guess she just hydroplaned."
Members of the Harlan County Rescue Squad from the Evarts and Harlan stations responded to the accident and found the girl lying on the ground beside her car. According to members of the squad, several coal miners en route to work saw Shackleford pinned by her car and stopped to help. The miners were successful in moving the car and helping free Shackleford from beneath the vehicle.
Jerry Kelly, a local resident, said he spoke with Shackleford after she was released from under the vehicle and reported she was alert and responsive.
According to a press release issued by the rescue squad, Shackleford received multiple injuries from the waist down and was transported by Mountain EMS to receive treatment at Harlan Appalachian Regional Hospital.
Lora Shackleford said her daughter was in good spirits although she still has to undergo further treatment.
