Nicole L. Cooper, 34, was ejected from a vehicle and taken by helicopter to University of Louisville Hospital Sunday night.

Cooper was driving west on KY 48/Highgrove Rd. around 7:40 p.m. when, for an unknown reason, swerved into the oncoming lane, said Deputy Gordon Miles. According to evidence at the scene, the driver over-corrected and ran off the right shoulder causing the car to flip.

Cooper was thrown through the rear window of the 1995 Pontiac Grand Am. She was flown to the Louisville hospital for injuries that included trauma to the head.

Miles said that speed was a factor and that Cooper was not wearing a seat belt.
