Woman hospitalized after Jefferson Co discovery

(KAIR)--A woman, who apparently fell into snow after exiting her SUV, was found Wednesday morning lying in snow, near the vehicle that had slid off a Jefferson County road.

WIBW-TV reports the 51-year-old woman was transported for treatment at a Topeka hospital, after receiving treatment at the scene by Jefferson County EMS.

It remains unclear how long the woman had been lying outside in the frigid conditions.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig told the TV station it appears the woman had been driving westbound on N.E. 27th, just west of Detlor Road, when it ran off the snowpacked roadway and into a ditch.

The woman, whose name is not made public, was reportedly suffering from exposure to the cold at the time she was discovered around 7:45 Wednesday morning.
