Roll-Over Crash on RT 15

Investigator Robert English of the Mansfield PSP reports on a crash that took place on 4-15-12 at17:39hours on US Highway 15, approximately 1 mile north of the Blossburg exit.  Brianna Knipe, 21, of Bethlehem, PA was travelling south on SR15 in her 2007 Toyota Corolla.   She momentarily looked at her GPS and traveled onto the berm and rumble strips.  She veered sharply to the right to bring the vehicle back onto the roadway.  This caused the vehicle to rotate clockwise.  She then steered to the left sharply to compensate causing her to lose control of the vehicle, which traveled into the median where it struck a culvert and concrete drainage pipe.  It then rolled over onto its roof in the median.  The passenger, Stephanie Pritchard, 20, of Parkesburg, PA was taken to Soldiers and Sailors Hospital in Wellsboro, PA for medical treatment.  Both were wearing safety belts.  Knipe was charged with VC3309(1) Roadways Laned for Traffic.
