MONROE, CT — A Southbury driver was hospitalized Sunday night, after she was involved in a one-vehicle-crash at the intersection of routes 111 and 34 Sunday night.
Police said the woman, who appeared to be in her 30s, drove her Honda Pilot north on Monroe Turnpike (Route 111) at a high rate of speed and did not stop for a stop sign at the intersection with Route 34.
The Pilot went through the intersection and over an embankment, rolling over while landing in a wooded area, police said.
Police officers responding to the call, which came in around 10:54 p.m., determined the location of the vehicle. Then firefighters arrived and performed an extrication, because the driver was entrapped inside her vehicle, according to the report.
Police said the woman did not appear to have life threatening injuries when Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service personnel transported her to a hospital for treatment.
All three of the town’s fire companies, Stepney, Stevenson and Monroe, responded to the emergency call.
Rescue 320 provided lighting for Hilario’s Service Center, as the towing company used its 40-ton Rotator to remove the vehicle from the woods, according to a post on the Stevenson Volunteer Fire Company’s Facebook page.
Police are still investigating the crash.
