State police at the Fogelsville barracks said an Allentown woman who was involved in a one-vehicle crash Jan. 17 at 12:19 p.m. on Rt. 100 in Lowhill Township, Lehigh County, sustained "major injuries."

Police said Doris L. Nichol, 47, had to be extricated from her 1995 Chevrolet Blazer by personnel from the Goodwill and Community fire companies.

Police said she was treated by EMS personnel from the Northwestern Ambulance and transported to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township.

Police said she was driving the vehicle northbound in the area of Bittner's Corner Road when she lost control of it while negotiating a turn. The blazer drove off the shoulder of the southbound lane, continued up an embankment and rolled over before coming to rest on its driver's side in the southbound lane.

The vehicle was towed from the scene.
