2 Hurt in Spectacular Upper Milford Roll-over Crash

Police say trouble began for the driver in the single-vehicle accident when she applied her brakes after seeing two cruiser cars.

A woman perhaps concerned with her speed got into a spectacular roll-over accident on Monday in Upper Milford Township when she saw two state police vehicles, according to troopers.

Her vehicle flipped three times, injuring the two occupants, one moderately, police said.

The driver, Rosemarie E. Ferry, 55, of Zionsville, was slightly hurt in the 4:41 p.m. crash in which her Dodge Durango rolled over three times, according to state police at Fogelsville. However, her passenger, Patrick E. Ferry, 43, and also of Zionsville, was moderately injured.

Rosemarie Ferry crested a hill heading south on Kings Highway South near Church View Road when she saw the two cruiser cars and braked, according to state police at Fogelsville. Her sport-utility vehicle slid on the wet roadway. While trying to correct her steering, Ferry's vehicle went onto the western berm and onto grass at 5930 Kings Highway S.

The vehicle struck a mailbox and several boulders, causing the SUV to roll over three times, police said. The Durango landed on its wheels across the highway, then rolled and came to rest in the southbound lane.

Both occupants were extricated from the vehicle by members of Macungie Ambulance Corps, Upper Milford Western District Fire Department and Emmaus rescue squad, police said. Both were transported to an area hospital.

Rosemarie Ferry was charged with driving at an unsafe speed, police said.

My wife and I travel this road with our three children every day. Every single day, multiple times a day. People fly down through this road and through these sharp curves. There is no shoulder and little visibility. There are frequent accidents on this stretch and Vera Cruz Road in general--from the Emmaus border all the way up to Church View Road is scary.
