A woman died early Saturday after sustaining injuries in a single-vehicle crash Friday evening in Clinton County.
Sherry Wargo, 43, of Beech Creek, was driving a 2004 Nissan Xterra south on state Route 150, Eagle Valley Road, at about 65 mph, when she veered off the roadway and hit a road sign, according to state police at Lamar.
She then tried to steer the vehicle back to the road, but police say she over-steered and traveled east across both lanes of travel, striking an embankment with the left-front end of the vehicle.
Upon impact, the vehicle rolled onto its right side and continued traveling south.
