Vehicle ends up in pond

Abbi Cook, 21, Connellsville, was taken to Somerset Hospital on New Year’s Day for injuries obtained in an accident on Summit View Court at Summit Drive in Jefferson Township, according to state police.

The vehicle’s driver failed to make a turn at the intersection, traveled west across both lanes and went up a small embankment and into a pond along the edge of the roadway, state police said. The vehicle stopped about 40 feet from the road submerged about 4 feet deep in the water, police said.

Three females were seen fleeing the vehicle on foot. Cook, the alleged driver, returned to the accident scene and was transported by Somerset ambulance to the hospital.
