Police found a missing woman in a vehicle that was partially under water Saturday morning around 9:30 a.m. on Poosey Ridge Road in Madison County.
Officials said the SUV had driven off an embankment and was partially in the Kentucky River.
The driver, 57-year-old Tina Johnson of Ashland was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
She had been reported as missing earlier that day by her family.
Although it hasn’t been officially diagnosed, police say that dementia may have played a factor in this accident.
