COVENTRY — Police are reporting that a 26-year-old woman from Newport was issued two tickets following a crash that took place Friday afternoon in Coventry, when her vehicle traveled off the road and down a 10 foot embankment.

According to a statement issued by the Vermont State Police following an investigation of the accident, Elizabeth Marino had been traveling west on Coventry Station Road when she passed another vehicle in a posted 35 mph zone.

The report states that Marino lost control of her vehicle as she tried to get back in her lane, which resulted in her traveling down the embankment, rolling her vehicle once and onto its tires.

No other cars were involved in the crash, and the 2009 Toyota Corolla Marino was traveling in had hood, front end, and roof damage from the rollover.

Marino was issued two tickets, one for an Unregistered Motor Vehicle and one for Driving too Fast for Conditions and Hazards.
