A Millersville woman was injured Wednesday morning after the car she was driving struck a tree four miles west of Jackson.

The accident occurred around 8:40 a.m. when a 1994 Mercury driven by Kara T. Lemmon, 39, was traveling eastbound on Highway 34. The Mercury struck a guardrail, ran off the roadway and hit a tree.

Lemmon was transported by ambulance to Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, where she was treated for moderate injuries. She was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, the highway patrol said.
