SALINE COUNTY — A Saline County woman and her 8-year-old daughter were injured when the SUV they were in rolled northwest of Salina Tuesday afternoon.

Brittney Walters, 28, of rural Salina, and her daughter were westbound on W. Stimmel Road in a 2004 Honda Pilot when she lost control of the SUV, Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan said this morning. The SUV went off the south side of the road, struck a fence, and rolled, coming to rest on its side.

The wreck occurred just east of N. Muir Road.

Soldan said Walters was found outside the vehicle and had not been properly restrained. A witness, who reported the wreck, saw the girl climb from the SUV. Soldan said the girl had appeared to have been properly restrained.

Walters complained of back pain and her daughter suffered cuts and bruises, Soldan said. Both were transported to Salina Regional Health Center.

Walters was cited for driving at an unsafe speed and not wearing a seatbelt.
