Woman escapes injury after crashing SUV



JACKSON TWP — A young woman escaped injury late Tuesday night after she lost control of her sport utility vehicle, sheared off a utility pole and slid into a creek near the Jackson Township-Evans City line, authorities said.
“She was pretty lucky she wasn’t hurt,” said Chief Mark Adomaitis of the Evans City Volunteer Fire Department.
Investigators did not immediately release the name of the woman, who is from Jackson Township and believed to be in her 20s.
The woman was traveling on Kaufmann Road, near Pattison Street, shortly before 11 p.m. when her Chevy SUV apparently skidded on the ice-covered road, authorities said.
“The vehicle hit a guardrail and telephone pole before it flopped down on the embankment and slid down into a creek,” said Evans City Police Sgt. Don Myers.
Myers said he saw the vehicle on its passenger side in the creek, which was about 3 feet wide and had about 8 inches of water in it.
The woman was attempted to get out of the SUV but could not open the driver’s door.
Myers got down the embankment and opened the door for her.
