A Norwalk driver is accused of losing control when she swerved to miss an unidentified, oncoming driver Tuesday.

Lyndsey D. Frankart-Blackburn, 31, of 72 N. Prospect St., was northbound on Peru Center Road just before the accident at 10:18 p.m. Troopers with the state Highway Patrol said she swerved to avoid hitting an oncoming vehicle, which went left of center.

Frankart-Blackburn overcorrected, lost control on the wet road, went off the right side and hit a ditch, troopers said. She wasn't injured.

Norb's North Side Service towed the 1999 Plymouth Neon from the crash site with disabling damage.

No citation had been issued as of Wednesday.
