Minor Injuries In Hilltoop Crash On Sunday Night

A Smethport woman and her six year old female passenger suffered minor injuries and were transported by Priority Care Ambulance to Bradford Regional Medical Center on Sunday after their 2010 Honda Civic crashed on Rt. 646  in Keating Township at 9:55 PM.

Alicia A. Mealy, 30, of Smethport, PA, was driving north on Rt. 646 when she lost control of the vehicle which left the roadway along the eastern berm and hit an embankment which sent the vehicle airborne.  The car then struck some tree limbs before landing and coming to rest along the east berm of the roadway.

Trooper Roger McCloskey said Mealy was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. The child was secured in a safety seat. Mealy was cited for Driving on Roadways Laned For Traffic.

Hilltop Fire Department and Priority Care Ambulance assisted at the scene. The vehicle was towed from the scene by McKeirnan's Towing.

Could someone explain to me why she would be sited for driving on roadways laned??? Obviously she needed to be sited but the wording doesn't make sense.

Essentially, it's a traffic infraction for failure to stay within a traffic lane:

From 75 PA Cons. Stat.

§ 3309. Driving on roadways laned for traffic.

Whenever any roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic the following rules in addition to all others not inconsistent therewith shall apply:

(1) Driving within single lane.--A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from the lane until the driver has first ascertained that the movement can be made with safety.
(2) Three lane roadways.--Upon a roadway which is divided into three lanes and provides for two-way movement of traffic, a vehicle shall not be driven in the center lane except when overtaking and passing another vehicle traveling in the same direction when the center lane is clear of traffic within a safe distance, or in preparation for making a left turn, or where the center lane is allocated exclusively to traffic moving in the same direction that the vehicle is proceeding and the allocation is designated by official traffic-control devices.
(3) Lanes limited to specific use.--Official traffic control devices may be erected to restrict the use of specified lanes to specified classes or types of traffic or vehicles, including multi-occupant vehicles or car pools, and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.
(4) Prohibitions against changing lanes.--Official traffic-control devices may be installed prohibiting the changing of lanes on a section of roadway and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.
