    MORRIS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - 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.
