A Kearney woman was left with minor injuries after her vehicle hit a cable barrier on an interstate ramp Sunday afternoon.

Troop A of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says at 2:18 Sunday afternoon 34-year-old Kearney resident Courtney S. Smith was operating a 2018 Kia Sportage on Interstate 35 northbound at the ramp to Brighton Road when her vehicle went off the left side of the roadway and struck a cable barrier.

Smith was wearing a seat belt at the time but still suffered minor injuries. She was taken to North Kansas City hospital for treatment.

The Patrol notes a wheel from Smith’s Kia was hit by another vehicle but that driver was uninjured and the vehicle was driven from the scene.
