A driver was not injured after a one-vehicle crash that ended with the vehicle in a ditch off Interstate 81 in Dickinson Township Sunday.
State Police at Carlisle said Kate Simpson, 27, of Binghamton, New York, was driving a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox south on I-81 when she left the left lane of travel and went into the median. The vehicle struck an embankment, causing the vehicle to go airborne before dropping about 30 feet into a ditch. The vehicle came to rest in the bottom of the ditch of Alexander Spring Creek.
