A two-vehicle traffic collision occurred on Kiester road. outside of the southern entrance to SRU and injured one person Tuesday evening around 6:30 p.m.  According to Slippery Rock Fire Marshal Dave Taggart.

According to Taggart, the accident was called in at 6:32 p.m. after a gray Toyota SUV turned left onto Kiester Rd. from the university entrance as a white Suzuki sedan with a flat front tire was coming down the hill on the road.

The driver of the sedan, Kimberly Arntz, a junior Business Major, attempted to swerve off of the road and to the right in order to avoid colliding with the gray SUV.

As the sedan swerved right, the car flipped onto its left side and pinned Arntz inside of her vehicle as the gray SUV collided into the flipped vehicle, according to Taggart.

The identity of the driver of the gray Toyota SUV is currently unknown.

Arntz had to be extricated from the wreckage by emergency officials. After officials removed her from the vehicle, Arntz was taken to Grove City Medical Center by paramedics, according to Taggart.

Arntz refused comment at press time, and the extent of her injuries remain unknown.
