A Vicksburg woman was taken to the hospital after her car flipped over in a one-car wreck on U.S. 61 South at about 8:40 this morning.

Flora Price Jones, 64, 11124 Oak Ridge Road, was taken to River Region Medical Center, where spokesman Allen Karel said her condition was being evaluated at midmorning.

The wreck occurred around 8:40 a.m., when Jones, who was northbound near the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society, swerved to miss a dog crossing the highway in front of her, Vicksburg police officer Burt Ryan said. He said her vehicle ran off to the right side, then over-corrected and flipped.
