A single vehicle accident shut down Russell Cave Road at Greenwich Pike in Fayette County Wednesday morning.
Police say a woman taking her 8-year-old daughter to school lost control of her car on a curve. The rear of the car hit a tree, spinning the vehicle. The front end of the car then hit the same tree.
Both the woman and her daughter escaped injury.
Only one lane of Russell Cave Road was open in the area of the crash as of 8:15 a.m. as crews worked to clear the scene.
Police say wet roads may have contributed to the crash.
