Two hurt in Sunday crash
A Stephens City woman and her passenger were injured in a single-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon when the SUV she was driving ran off the road on U.S. 50 in Frederick County.
Sgt. F.L. “Les” Tyler, public information officer for the Virginia State Police, said that the driver, Pamela Jenkins, 54, of Stephens City, and her passenger, Mary Snyder, 82, address unknown, were taken to Winchester Medical Center. Tyler said both were wearing seat belts.
“(It was on) westbound Route 50, one-tenth of a mile west of route 817, which is Magic Mountain Road,” Tyler said. “(It was a) single vehicle (crash) – a 1998 Ford SUV. … The vehicle was traveling westbound on Route 50, ran off the road to the right. The driver overcorrected, the vehicle then went back off the road … struck an embankment and overturned in the westbound lane.”
Tyler said that Trooper D.J. Scott investigated the crash, the cause of which is still under investigation. Scott was assisted by the Gainesboro Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
