State Police said Juanita Greene, 78, of Sandy Hook, lost control of her vehicle and crashed while trying to avoid a pothole.
Investigators said it happened at the intersection of KY 173 and KY 32 in Rowan County on Wednesday.
State Police said Greene veered into the northbound lane while trying to avoid a pothole and encountered a vehicle traveling northbound.
Investigators said Greene veered off the southbound shoulder of the road in an attempt to avoid the other vehicle, hit a road sign and a fence and ended up going over an embankment.
Greene was taken to Saint Claire Medical Center in Morehead with non-life threatening injuries, according to State Police.
