Greensburg woman injured in Route 66 accident

Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

A Greensburg woman was injured in a single-vehicle crash in Salem Township Thursday morning.

Terry L. Ribnicky, 50, was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh after the accident along Route 66 just before 10 a.m., state police said.

Ribnicky was driving north when her passenger side tires drifted off the road, pulling her Chevy Cavalier into a guide rail, police said.

Ribnicky's vehicle drove against the guide rail for about 96 feet then struck an embankment, police said.

Ribnicky was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

While police said she suffered a moderate injury, a spokeswoman at UPMC said the hospital had no record of her as a patient.
