which the car became airborne and landed down an embankment.
According to reports, Tracey L. Hunter, 27, of Livingston,
was driving the blue 2000 Honda north on Highway 52 around 4 p.m.
Wednesday, Jan. 21 when, near the entrance to Fairview Road, she
passed a truck at a high rate of speed and overcorrected, losing
control of the vehicle.
The Honda hit a guardrail on the northbound side and
flew through the air. The car came down in a wooded area off the
side of the road, went on down an embankment until it struck a tree.
The vehicle travelled approximately 141 feet after hitting the guardrail,
according to the report by Sgt. Randy Boles of Livingston Police
