Menifee County dispatchers tell NEWSFIRST someone passing by spotted the wreckage around 5:00 Tuesday night on a rural road off of Kentucky 77. That's in the Red River Gorge area.

The driver was found alive several feet from her car. She's been identified as Darlene Morse. Police say when they found her, she was in a confused state of mind and dehydrated.

She was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital where she's listed in fair condition.
