NESHANNOCK TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A New Castle woman was killed in a one-car accident in Lawrence County.

Jennifer Bryant, 29, of New Castle was ejected from the car when it crashed on Route 376 underneath the Mitchell Road overpass.

She was a passenger in the vehicle. Lawrence County Coroner Russell Noga tells KDKA-TV that Bryant was not wearing a seatbelt at the time.

The male driver, who has not been identified, suffered leg and head injuries. He was eventually taken to a Pittsburgh hospital.

Two children – a two-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl weren’t seriously hurt.

Crash scene investigators say it appears the driver lost control, fishtailed and hit a guardrail before flipping over several times.

Traffic on westbound 376 was rerouted while State police surveyed the accident scene.
