SHEFFIELD — A 39-year-old woman from Lyndon was involved in a single-vehicle crash in Sheffield on Saturday.

The crash took place on I-91 south at around 11:15 a.m.

A damaged, blue 2018 Nissan Sentra was seen leaning against the guardrail head-on.

The driver, identified as Jennifer Bell, told police that she was traveling south when she swerved to avoid a deer, lost traction due to recent rain, and collided with the nearby guardrail.

The vehicle sustained moderate front-end damage, however, the guardrail was undamaged.

Bell suffered minor/moderate injuries to her head and neck and was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital to be evaluated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers were assisted on the scene by members of the Sheffield-Wheelock Fire Department and Lyndon Rescue.
