Nicole Atwell, 28, of Melbourne was injured around 6:50 p.m. July 26, when she swerved to miss a deer.
According to Arkansas State Trooper Brandon Cook, Atwell was traveling west on County Road 78, 1/2 miles east of Arkansas State Highway 69 in Melbourne driving a 1992 Ford Ranger, when a deer ran in front of her vehicle.
Atwell swerved to avoid the deer and ran off the eastbound side of the road. After the vehicle left the roadway it struck a tree and flipped over, landing on the passenger side facing south, where it came to rest.
Atwell was transported to White River Medical Center in Batesville.
