State Police Troop M Fogelsville say Tamara L. Hottinger, 44, of New Tripoli, was driving a 2015 Honda CRV when it struck a tree just after 7 a.m. March 23 at 6741 Schochary Road, Lynn Township.
According to police, Hottinger was driving northbound, near the Schochary Road location, negotiating an uphill left curve, when the Honda left its lane of travel and hit snow on the right shoulder.
The Honda continued off the roadway before striking a tree approximately five feet off the roadway at its 11 o’clock position.
Hottinger and a 15-year-old female passenger from New Tripoli were both transported to Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township, for evaluation of suspected minor injuries. Police say both Hottinger and the passenger were wearing seat belts.
The SUV, which sustained disabling damage to its front end, was towed from the scene.
