During an unseasonable rainstorm Thursday a full size pickup truck driven by a Huron woman rolled down a ditch and lodged in a swamp off the east edge of Cedar Point Road.    

Driver Holly Duttera suffered facial injuries and was conscious when rescue squads got there, Sandusky fire Lt. Adam Butler said.

Sandusky paramedics got to there first and waded through knee-deep mud to pry the truck door open.

“They must have just muscled the door open,” Sandusky fire Lt. Adam Butler said. “They didn’t have any tools.”

They put her on a back board and took her to Firelands Regional Medical Center, he said. She remained at the hospital in stable condition as of 6 p.m. Thursday night.

Sandusky police Lt. Robert Vanscoy said the truck was traveling north on Cedar Point Road when it veered off the road to the left. Duttera then overcorrected. The truck came back across the road, went off the right side and plunged into the edge of a swamp, Vanscoy said.

Police cited Duttera for reckless operation and no seat belt.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, Vanscoy said.

Let's just hope that this woman will recover. This rainstorm was very heavy. These trucks are huge and maybe she was not used to driving it in this kind of weather. Accidents happen to all age groups. It is ironic that her name is "Holly". Merry Christmas

Yeah, it's rather difficult to be a driver and a passenger at the same time.  Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.

Speedy recovery. Some people need trucks to haul, pull, etc…Can’t put a mold in the back of a Volt or tow a skid steer with a Leaf, been in places you could lose a normal pick up. I have always had large 4x4 trucks, and I will admit people often get over confident. I came home in a snowstorm and counted more 4x4 pick ups off the road than anything. Yea right; well seasoned at PAM and going strong, what do pro drivers call ya, a steering wheel-holder with an automated-manual?  
yea right
