A Gap woman who sustained major injuries Monday when the van she was driving left a roadway and struck a pole has been released from a hospital.
Three passengers in the van -- including two children, ages 2 and 4 -- also were injured in the crash.
Veronica A. Smucker, 31, was driving south on Newport Road, about 820 feet north of Route 41, around 10 a.m. when the vehicle went off the road and struck a utility pole, according to a report by state police Trooper Andrew Manning.
Manning did not say what caused the van to swerve from the road.
Smucker sustained major injuries in the crash and was taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment, according to the report.
A hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday that Smucker had been released from the hospital. No further information on her condition was available.
A passenger in the van, 63-year-old Lomas R. Rai of Gap, sustained moderate injuries. The two young girls, both of whom were in child safety seats, sustained minor to moderate injuries.
The passengers also were treated at Lancaster General.
