FAIRFIELD — A Weston woman escaped serious injury in a car crash Saturday, July 1.

According to police, the 56-year-old woman drove through a stop sign on Cross Highway and intended to make a left turn. However, police said, she instead continued straight and hit a stone wall. The collision flipped the car over several times, and the car’s windshield smashed into the stone wall.

She was conscious and talking when police arrived on the scene and did not want to go to the hospital. However, due to the severity of the accident, and AMR Ambulance policy, the woman was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. The woman told police she was coming from a party in Westport.

Police are continuing their investigation into the accident.
