Vehicle Ends Up on Its Side on Geiger Grade

By  | 

The Highway Patrol says it's not known if speed was a factor in an accident on Geiger Grade Saturday afternoon.

Authorities say an elderly woman was extricated from her vehicle after it ended up on its side near a turn on the grade. The woman was assessed by Remsa on the scene. Offcials say the woman didn't appear to have major injuries.

The Highway Patrol says drugs and alcohol are not suspected to have been involved in the crash.

A firefighter says because they believed the woman wasn't severely injured, they didn't use the jaws of life to get her out of the crash. He says first responders were able to roll down windows instead.
