The driver of a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am was transported to the Shenandoah Memorial Hospital following a single vehicle accident Tuesday morning south of Shenandoah. The Page County Sheriff’s Office reports 23-year old Jessica Lynn Strange, of Riverton, was traveling north on Highway 59 at around 7:45-a.m., when for reasons unknown, the car went on to the east shoulder of the road. When the woman over-corrected, the car crossed the road and went on to the west shoulder of Highway 59.

When Strange over-corrected a second time, the car went into the east ditch and slid sideways over a metal post before coming to rest next to some small trees. Strange suffered possible, unknown injuries during the mishap. Her car sustained about $1,600 damage. No citations were issued.
