Driver Flips Her Wig, Crashes; Five Injured

Compiled From Wire Services

A driver blinded by her blowing hairpiece lost control of her car on the highway and crashed, flipping over a guardrail.

Seat belts limited injuries in the Friday morning crash. Driver Juanita Lamb, 46, of Indianapolis and four passengers got hospital treatment, and were released.

The unusual crash came on Interstate 65, about five miles north of Louisville, Ky. It could have been much worse if all five had not been wearing seat belts, police said.
