— 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.
