River Rescue

Updated: Tuesday, February 18 2014, 06:49 PM EST
A driver lands their car in the Tuckaseigee River this morning.

It happened around 8:30am on Ledbetter Road in Jackson County.

The driver of the SUV told troopers a car traveling in the opposite direction, came into her lane. That's when she over-corrected and went into the river.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers say it isn't the first time an accident has happened on this road.

A deadly accident has previously occurred in this same spot.
