LARRY NEFF/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
A 23-year-old woman was injured early Wednesday morning when involved in a crash along Mahoning Street in Lehighton. The victim called the Carbon County Communications Center at 6:30 a.m. stating she had struck a utility pole somewhere near the Lehighton High School. A short time later emergency personnel found the woman and her car on the lawn of a home just west of the school property. She apparently was traveling west and failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. Her car went down a deep culvert knocking off a road sign impacting with several trees before coming to rest on its wheels on the lawn. She was treated at the scene by Lehighton paramedics and transported to the Lehighton hospital. Responding was the Lehighton Fire department. Lehighton police, assisted by Mahoning township police, are investigating the incident.
