Susan G. Helkey, 57, was booked Monday into the Clallam County jail by the State Patrol after the red 2000 Pontiac Grand Am she was driving westbound failed to go around a right curve on Highway 112 between Place and Eden Valley roads and left the roadway at about 4:30 p.m., said Trooper Russ Winger, State Patrol spokesman.
Helkey, who was uninjured in the wreck, was no longer listed on the jail roster Tuesday.
After crossing the centerline of Highway 112 and leaving the road, the Pontiac that Helkey was driving hit a directional sign and went through a fence, the State Patrol said, continuing another 200 feet across a field before striking a tree and coming to a stop.
Clallam County Fire District No. 2 personnel said Helkey had climbed out of the car on her own and was walking along the highway.
Medics checked her for injuries and, finding none, turned her over to the State Patrol.
