Right now......police do not know why an elderly woman left the road and overturned

this morning just outside LaPorte.
Police say 67 year old Rachel Tibbs was the driver.

The LaPorte woman was southbound on U.S 35.....when she left the highway

went into a ditch and overturned.

Her 2014 Ford sport utility vehicle landed on its roof.

Police say Tibbs had to be extricated from the wreckage....

She was then flown to Memorial Hospital in South Bend with what was

described as an injury to her upper body.

So far...no information has been released on her condition.

U.S 35 was closed for one hour.....from Johnson Road to 400 North.....

The accident occurred just before 7:30 a.m.
