A Manhattan woman was hospitalized Thursday morning after she reportedly lost control of her vehicle on Kimball Avenue and ran off the road.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Margaret Sweany, 28, was driving her red 1997 Honda Passport southbound at approximately 9:30 a.m. when she lost control, overcorrected and struck an embankment off the side of the road.

Riley County EMS transported Sweany for minor neck and shoulder pain. Officers cited Sweany for failure to maintain a single lane of traffic. The reporting officer indicated speed was a contributing factor in the accident.
