The driver of a Ford Ranger was uninjured following a collision Tuesday morning with a parked car.

Hillary Nance, 22, of Ironton, was driving the Ranger at approximately 9:05 a.m., eastbound on U.S. 52 at Mile Post 16, when she drifted off the right side of the roadway and struck a parked car, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

“She then crossed the roadway and went off the left side into the median and overturned,” Trooper Rob McClelland said.

The parked car, which was a maroon Saturn, had been tagged as abandoned by the patrol, but the 48-hour waiting period had not expired for it to be towed away.

The Saturn sustained heavy damage on the rear end and the Ranger damage to the right rear and left side.

Nance was cited for failure to maintain control.
