A Calhoun woman is improving in Charleston Area Medical Center after suffering serious injuries in a car accident Sunday morning.

Nineteen-year-old Rochelle Reddick was placed in a step-down unit from ICU yesterday, and is scheduled for further surgery.

Reddick reportedly suffered a compound fracture of her femur, crushed knee caps, a punctured lung and internal bleeding, according to a family spokesperson.

Jason Conrad, 24, a passenger in Reddick's vehicle, has been released from CAMC. He reportedly suffered from a severed ear, which was re-attached, and fractured ribs.

The Reddick car was traveling south on Rt. 16, Pleasant Hill, near the intersection of Vaughan Road, when the vehicle went out of control as it went down a small hill.

The auto then struck a tree along the highway, throwing Reddick from the vehicle and came to rest several feet away in a yard.

The accident was one of several last weekend during icy road conditions that sent several people to the hospital.
