A driver had to be rushed to the hospital Monday morning after police say her car went off a Scott County road and nearly hit a home.

The crash happened around 10:30 a.m. on Stamping Ground Road, near Georgetown.

Police say the driver, Holly Tudor, 19, lost control in a curve and hit a ditch, which caused the car to roll over several times.

The car landed against the front porch of a home.

Police say Tudor was thrown from her car during the crash. She was taken to UK Hospital, where at last check, she was in serious condition.

Her five-month-old son, Trenton, was also in the car, but was not injured. Police say he was in a car seat, in the backseat of the car.

The owner of the home says moments after the crash, he jumped into the car and got the infant out, all while talking to 911 dispatchers.

"There wasn't no glass or nothing around him," homeowner Gulferry Taylor said of the baby. "He was just sitting back there. Not even crying. That was a blessing."

Police say the driver was not wearing her seat belt. They believe wet roads played roles in the crash.
