A driver tried unsuccessfully to navigate Oxford Drive in McKeesport, losing control of an SUV that struck three parked cars before the vehicle rolled onto its side.

The mother of the driver, who did not wish to be identified, said her daughter was released from a local hospital on Monday with a possible shoulder injury following the early morning incident.

McKeesport firefighters extricated the 29-year-old driver from the SUV shortly after midnight and she was taken by ambulance to UPMC Presbyterian.

“She was alert and conscious, but complaining of neck and shoulder pain,” McKeesport police Assistant Chief Tom Greene said.

An owner of one of the damaged vehicles, who did not want her name published, was walking her dog and witnessed the accident.

She said the SUV was going downhill when it struck a red vehicle and another car before tipping onto its side and striking her sedan, forcing it into a curb.

The sedan had damage to the driver's side door, fender and passenger side tire.

“Witnesses put her coming around the corner at a very slow speed, sliding and impacting another car,” Greene confirmed.

The mother and the sedan owner said there are usually vehicles parked on both sides of Oxford Drive, making it difficult to drive between them.

Police said no charges have been filed. The accident remains under investigation.
