A Kentucky woman was injured after her car slid under a semi trailer that police say was making an illegal u-turn.

It happened just after 5:45 p.m. Monday on Interstate 69 at 74-mile marker in Lyon County, Ky.

According to Kentucky State Police, a tractor-trailer driven by Melvin Hauschild of Louisville, Kentucky was trying to make a reported illegal u-turn at the 74-mile marker on Interstate 69.

Troopers say Hauschild was traveling in the left lane and swerved over into the right lane to try to make a swift turn through the median.

Courtney Campbell of Louisville was unable to stop her car.

Police say Campbell unable to come to a stop, and her car slid underneath the trailer and became lodged in front of the trailer tires.
