A Blountville woman was transported to the hospital Friday morning after her pickup truck overturned on Interstate 81.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol reports the incident occurred at 9:50 a.m. at mile marker 68. According to a preliminary crash report, Kathy Artrip's 2002 Ford F-150 was southbound when she exited the left side of the roadway, then overcorrected to right.

Police say Artrip's vehicle crossed both lanes of traffic and struck a guardrail. Upon impact the pickup overturned, coming to rest on its roof.

Artrip, 41, was transported to Bristol Regional Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. An investigation into the incident is continuing with charges pending.
