Metro police told News 2 the woman was trying to take the exit but didn’t make the turn, flying through a wooded area and landing near a parking lot around 50 yards from the roadway.

The driver was treated for minor injuries. Metro police said they do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

Earlier Thursday night, a head-on crash involving a car and a semi-truck left two people injured on I-24 near Shelby Avenue.
