GRANGE — A Punxsutawney woman escaped injury when her vehicle rolled over at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday along Route 536 in Grange, Perry Township.

According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police, a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by Pamula J. Binnie, Punxsutawney, was traveling north on Route 536 when she swerved to miss a small animal on the road.

Police said Binnie lost control of her vehicle and traveled onto the east side of the road, struck a road sign and then traveled back over to the west side of the road near the Grange Church of God.

The vehicle struck some landscaping, which caused some stones to break a basement window in the church, police said.

According to police, Binnie’s vehicle then traveled back down a short embankment onto the road, which caused it to overturn onto its roof, coming to rest.

Police said there were no injuries, and Binnie’s vehicle was towed from the scene by Walker’s Towing.

Police were assisted at the scene by Jefferson County EMS, the Perry Township Volunteer Fire Company and the Lindsey Fire Company.
