Woman, dog injured during rollover in Kline
ANDREW LEIBENGUTH/TIMES NEWS Kevin Evans of McAdoo cares for an injured dog following the accident. Evans, who turned around after seeing the accident happen in his rear view mirror, even took the dog home to care for him.
A McAdoo woman had to be extricated after flipping her vehicle just south of McAdoo in Kline Township.
Just after 2 p.m. yesterday, emergency responders were called to the area below the railroad bridge that runs across SR309 in Kline Township for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment. Firefighters and rescuers arrived quickly and used hydraulic equipment to free the woman and her dog from the vehicle.
Kline Township Police Chief John Petrilla said Sara Patrole, of McAdoo, was driving southbound on SR309 out of McAdoo when she lost control and struck a center railroad bridge support. This caused her vehicle to traverse into the northbound lane and flip on its side into an adjacent embankment.
After being extricated, she was transported to Hazleton General Hospital. A dog was also injured in the accident and was taken away to be cared for by a bystander. Responding were police, firefighters, ambulance and fire police from Kline and McAdoo. Her condition was unknown as of press time.
