Local Woman Hospitalized

A McConnellsburg woman was taken to Chambersburg Hospital last Wednesday morning after her vehicle struck several utility poles along a Franklin County roadway. Pennsylvania State Police in Chambersburg reported 72-yearold Inez S. Eddy suffered moderate injuries during the 7: 30 a. m. crash in Saint Thomas Township.

Eddy was injured, police said, when her eastbound 1990 Buick Park Avenue drifted onto the berm and swiped a utility pole. The car continued eastbound, striking a mailbox and a second utility pole along Route 30 with its front end.

Eddy was wearing a seat belt and was transported to the hospital via Saint Thomas ambulance.
