An Armstrong County man escaped serious injury when a speeding car crashed on top of the vehicle he was sleeping in early Friday, Butler Township police said.

Amanda Doss, 36, of Lufkin, Texas, was speeding on Route 8 around 5:20 a.m. when her northbound car crossed four lanes, hit a couple of curbs, and flew into the air after hitting an embankment.

Doss' car crashed into the front windshield and roof of a minivan owned by Brian Kuhlman, 38, of South Bend, which was in the parking lot of Advance Auto Parts. Kuhlman is a delivery driver who was sleeping in the back of the minivan, police said.

Doss and Kuhlman suffered minor injuries, police said, but refused treatment. Doss was cited for reckless driving and speeding.
