Two crashes in the area counties Tuesday resulted in injuries for the drivers.

At about 5:50 am, in Daviess County, a single-vehicle crash left a Texas woman with minor injuries.  State Troopers report 44-year-old Monica Estrada was northbound near Winston when she swerved to miss the traffic that was merging into her lane.  She ran into the median and her pick-up overturned, coming to rest on the driver’s side.  She was taken to Cameron Regional Medical Center for treatment.  She was wearing a safety belt.
