Pennsylvania State Police at Fogelsville said in a news release Wednesday that a Hellertown woman suffered suspected minor injuries in an Aug. 31 car crash in Lower Macungie Township.

Police said the 38-year-old woman was westbound on Sauerkraut Lane near Saddlebrook Road when the accident happened shortly after noon.

According to police, the driver of an eastbound vehicle “failed to correctly negotiate a right hand curve in the road, crossed over the double yellow line and struck (the Hellertown woman’s vehicle) at its 10 o’clock position.”
