Mahoning Police said the driver of an Chevy Suburban was traveling north and swerved to avoid hitting a deer. The SUV swerved into the southbound lane, striking the woman’s car.
The car went under the large SUV, with the left rear wheel passing over the car. The car continued south, went off the road and traveled down a steep embankment. The driver was treated at the scene by members of the Mahoning Valley ambulance before being transported to St. Luke’s-Gnaden Huetten campus.
Mahoning Valley firefighters assisted at the scene. Mahoning Township police are investigating the incident.
