Southwest Regional police Chief John Hartman said weather played a role in an accident just after 9 a.m. Thursday in Union Township.

The chief commended two passersby for their “heroic actions” in assisting at the scene.

Police said Jessica Lynn Levandosky, 26, of 146 Chess St., New Eagle, was driving in the 2200 block of Route 88 when her vehicle struck black ice and rolled over.

Levandosky told police she was on her way home when her vehicle began to slide into the opposite lane of traffic. To avoid a head-on collision, she jerked the wheel suddenly and struck a hillside, causing her SUV to roll on to its roof and leaving her suspended upside down in her seat.

Two drivers who were passing by stopped to render aid, breaking Levandosky's window and removing her seatbelt before helping her out of the vehicle.

Hartman said he could not release the identities of those who helped Levandosky because they had not spoken to the responding officer.

Hartman said Levandosky initially refused medical treatment, but was later transported to Monongahela Valley Hospital by Jefferson Hills Ambulance complaining of facial and back pain.
