A 21-year-old Pennsylvania woman was charged with DWI following a single-car accident on Main Road in Pembroke on Monday morning.

Jessica A. Franks, 5109 Bellvedere Road, Tobyhanna, Pa., allegedly failed to reduce her speed as her car entered a curve causing it to leave the roadway and strike a mailbox and its post.

The mailbox and post went airborne and struck a parked car. Franks' car then continued westbound striking two trees and a utility pole.

Franks was taken by ground ambulance to ECMC. The accident occurred at 5:41 a.m. in the area of 607 Main Road.

Franks' passenger, Darcie L. Myers, 21, was not injured.

The accident was investigated by Deputy Howard Carlson.
