A Port Matilda woman was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center on Saturday afternoon after a one-vehicle accident on Buffalo Run Road.

Patton Township police said officials were dispatched to the 4700 block of Buffalo Run Road about 2 p.m. for a report of a one-vehicle crash.

Sgt. Sean Albright said a Kia Sportage operated by Dorothy Hamer was driving north on Buffalo Run Road when she went off the east side of the road, down an embankment and struck a tree.

Hamer was trapped inside the vehicle and was removed by members of Alpha Fire Company, and transported to the hospital.
