FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia State Police say a driver survived a rollover near Hardy Friday.

Troopers say she was in the northbound lanes of Hardy Road, near Bay Rock Marina Drive, when she lost control. The vehicle flipped 3 to 4 times, according to VSP.

Troopers say the driver was thrown through a window, and the car landed on her. VSP says she was hospitalized, but has no major injuries. Troopers say that’s because she landed in a small ditch that kept most of the car’s weight off her.
