Just before 7 p.m. Jones was northbound on U.S. 77 when she fell asleep. Her Mitsubishi Galant vehicle veered across the center line in the southbound lanes and into a ditch on the south side of the highway. The vehicle then traveled northbound in the ditch and struck a culvert on a drive at 923 Highway 77.
Jones was taken to Herington Municipal Hospital with a suspected serious injury. She was properly restrained at the time of the accident.
A four-month old infant girl who was riding in the car was not injured. She was properly restrained as well.
