CORNWALL — A 75-year-old Sudbury woman was involved in a single-vehicle crash in Cornwall on Wednesday.

According to the report, the driver, Etta Aines, was headed north at a speed estimated to be around 50 miles-per-hour.

After striking the guardrail the vehicle traveled across the highway towards the southbound shoulder where it came to a position of rest.

Police say Aines suffered a minor head injury.
