PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - A car crash sent two people to an area hospital for minor injuries.
Deputies say Desiree Blankenship, 19, of Brookport, Illinois and her passenger, Shane Leonard, 25, of Paducah were both treated for injuries after Blankenship's 2001 Pontiac Sunfire left the road and crashed.
The accident happened at the 1500 block of Lane Road.
McCracken County Deputies were able to determine that prior to the accident, the car was traveling westbound on Lane Road.
Officers say Blankenship failed to negotiate a left hand curve and her car ran off the right side of the road where it collided with a dirt embankment and a large piece of concrete.
Blankenship was taken into custody after she was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital.
She was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence under the age of 21 and 4th degree assault.
