BYRAM, MS (WLBT) - Frightening moments Saturday afternoon when a woman lost control of her car and plunged into a Hinds County lake.

Hinds County deputies and rescue crews responded to Lake Dockery off Siwell Road.

Davis was trapped inside the partially submerged vehicle and had to be rescued.

Davis was conscious, but suffered head injuries and had to be airlifted to U.M.C.

Davis' condition is not known at this time.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused her to lose control and leave the roadway.
