CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. – Upper Allen Police say excessive speed appears to be a factor in a single vehicle crash this morning that injured a Harrisburg woman.  It happened at about 8:20 am on Route 15 near mile marker 36 just south of West Lisburn Road.

Police found Quiana Henderson, 29, of the 2600 block of North 6th Street, behind the wheel and unconscious.  Witnesses reported seeing Henderson’s vehicle traveling at speeds near an estimated 100 mph just prior to the crash. While swerving through traffic at high speeds, she apparently lost control of her car and slammed into the center jersey barrier median. Her car then spun around and came to rest on the right side of the roadway.

Henderson was transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment. Police were assisted on scene by the Upper Allen and Dillsburg Fire Departments, Lower Allen EMS, and Upper Allen Fire Police.
