Mt. Hope, MO (KSDK) - A young Franklin County woman was seriously injured on New Year's Day, after she lost control of her car and flipped the vehicle into a ditch.
Troopers with the Missouri Highway Patrol tell NewsChannel 5 around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, 18 year old Kaitlin Tetidrick of Union was northbound on Highway 47 south of Yellow Dog Road when she failed to negotiate a curve.
