A girl said a tree saved her life this week in Morris Township.
Police said a driver lost control and flew off State Route 18 and toward a home.
“I was in my room asleep. I heard this big boom, and it woke me up,” said 9-year-old Gabriella Wynniello.
The driver hit a tree and struck the corner of the home, police said.
“The guy crashed, and this tree saved my life. If it wasn’t there, I probably would be dead right now,” said Wynniello.
The driver was taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital with head injuries.
Police believe he was speeding.
