PHILLIPS — A local woman was injured July 11, when her SUV crossed the centerline on Route 4 and veered off the road, according to Franklin County Sheriff’s Sgt. Matthew Brann.
Marilyn Skinner, 57, of Phillips was driving a 2003 Nissan while moving items from the front passenger seat, Brann wrote in an email.
“As a result of being distracted, she crossed the centerline and went off the road to the left, hitting a driveway embankment head-on,” Brann wrote. “The vehicle then went airborne,went into some trees and came to a rest on the passenger side.”
Skinner suffered possible shoulder injuries and a laceration from the seat belt. She was taken by a NorthStar EMS ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington.
Brann was assisted at the scene by Deputy Brad Scovil and Phillips and Strong Fire Departments. The U.S. Border Patrol also responded.
