PHILIPSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says a 45-year-old woman was killed when her all-terrain vehicle crashed and rolled over in central Pennsylvania.

The Centre County coroner says Coleen Dixon, of Munson, died at the scene of the crash early Sunday in Rush Township. That’s about 120 miles east of Pittsburgh.

State police say a passing motorist came upon the wreckage about 4 a.m. Police say Dixon lost control of the vehicle and hit an embankment. She was thrown from the vehicle, which landed on its side.

An autopsy is set for Monday.

Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash. Dixon wasn’t wearing a helmet.
