VENANGO COUNTY, Pa. —
A western Pennsylvania woman was killed when she crashed on an all-terrain vehicle while riding up a hill so she could get a cell phone signal.
Venango County Coroner Tyler Best says he pronounced 22-year-old Kristine Schindler dead at the scene early Saturday in Rockland Township.
Schindler, from Adams Township, Butler County, was visiting with friends at a rural camp about 65 miles north of Pittsburgh when Best says she took off on an ATV to get cellular service.
Schindler wasn't wearing a helmet when she lost control of the vehicle rounding a corner and was thrown off the vehicle and into a tree about 12:10 a.m.
Schindler's friends went looking for her when she didn't return from making the call and alerted state police when they couldn't find her.
