Kanawha County deputies say a woman is lucky to be alive after slamming her car into a guardrail, Tuesday morning.
It happened along Aarons Fork Road in Frame. Deputies say the woman was driving too fast, went off the side of the road, overcorrected, and crashed into a guardrail.
She was pinned in the car and her car had to be taken apart to get her out.
A woman told Eyewitness News that the car barely missed her grandson while he was waiting at the bus stop. "It terrified me and my grandson just came to a halt because it scared him to death. And he kept backing up into me because I wasn't too far from him. But it was real scary because I was scared to death that he could have been killed today," said Margie Shawver.
Deputies said if the guardrail had been just 6 inches closer to the driver, she could have been killed.
Emergency crews responded to a crash that left one person trapped inside a vehicle Tuesday morning.
It happened about 8 a.m. along Aarons Fork Road in Elkview, a dispatcher said. There are early reports that the driver hit a bridge and that a portion of the guardrail has gone through the car, leaving one person trapped.
Eyewitness News has a crew headed to the scene. Keep checking wchstv.com for updates.
