Woman uninjured after North East-area rollover crash
— A woman walked away — uninjured — after the minivan she was driving veered off a North East-area highway over the weekend, rolled and came to rest on its roof in a resident’s front yard, according to the Maryland State Police.
The single-vehicle accident occurred about 2:15 p.m. Saturday in the 2400 block of Joseph Biggs Highway, north of North East, and the initial emergency dispatch indicated that it was a rollover crash resulting in injuries.
However, on Monday night, an MSP spokesman at the North East barrack said the preliminary accident report indicated that the driver — Suzette Honore-Jackson, 62, of Port Deposit — did not require medical treatment. HonoreJackson, who was wearing a seatbelt, was the only person in the vehicle, police noted.
Honore-Jackson was driving a Nissan Quest minivan in the westbound lane of Joseph Biggs Highway, east of Kirks Mill Lane, when she lost control of the vehicle, which then veered off the right side of the road, police said.
The vehicle rolled before coming to rest upside-down in a front lawn, several yards away from the road, police added.
Nearby residents and witnesses rushed to the scene to assist, in addition to MSP troopers and paramedics.
As of Tuesday, information regarding why Honore-Jackson lost control of the vehicle was unavailable. The MSP spokesman reported that investigators did not find any signs of alcohol consumption, ruling it out as a contributing factor.
Maryland State Police troopers inspect the damaged minivan and interview witnesses, after a single-vehicle rollover crash near North East on Saturday. The driver, who was the sole occupant, did not require medical treatment, police reported.
