A crash Saturday afternoon stopped traffic when a crane was brought in to remove the vehicle off the fountain at the entrance to the Lakewood area.

According to police, the 70-year-old driver was transported to the hospital with a possible broken neck.

“It appears she was going to make a turn on 38thStreet and apparently her speed was too fast, or she got distracted, but whatever the reason, she missed the turn,” said Sgt. Bryant Rockwood.

The Geo Prism ended up on the fountain, just missing the statue marking the entrance to Lakewood at 38th Street and Chandler Boulevard in Ahwatukee Foothills.

Rockwood said that there were no signs of impairment and that officers were still investigating the incident. He said it wasn’t clear if a citation had or will be issued.
