A woman and a girl were injured in a one-car accident on Cape Rock Drive Tuesday evening.

Cape Girardeau Fire Battalion Chief Bob Kembel said the driver of the vehicle reportedly struck a utility pole near Lexington Avenue and overturned in the road about 6:09 p.m.

Kembel said the driver and a young girl were transported to Saint Francis Medical Center. There were no other passengers.

Fire department officials did not release information about the victims. Kembel said he did not know which direction the vehicle was traveling at the time of the accident or the make or model of the vehicle.

Power lines were down, Kembel said, but it was unknown if power was out in the neighborhood.

Cape fire and police and AmerenUE workers responded to the scene.

AmerenUE officials could not be reached for comment.
