A driver says she fell asleep at the wheel Saturday afternoon leading to a one-car rollover accident on Creek Road near Putnam Road.
Linda M. Drumstra, 59, of Brookville Road, Alexander, was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital by Mercy Flight with non-life-threatening injuries.
Drumstra was driving a 2009 Toyota SUV northbound on Creek Road when her vehicle went off the roadway, struck two trees and overturned, coming to rest on the driver's side.
The accident was investigated by Deputy Chris Parker, who issued a citation to Drumstra for allegedly moving from lane unsafely.
