A Reading woman sustained minor injuries when the vehicle she was driving crashed into a tree Thursday morning on U.S. Route 322, according to state police at Philipsburg.
Cpl. Derek Pacella said Michelle L. Santiago, 54, was heading west on Port Matilda Highway at about 8:30 a.m. when she lost control of her 2002 Suzuki XL-7 SUV on the icy, snow-cover road near the Thompson Road intersection.
A police report said the driver slid on the icy road and hit a tree on the right ride of the roadway.
Santiago was evaluated by Moshannon Valley EMS but refused treatment, according to the police report.
