WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A 35-year-old Greencastle, Pa., woman died Friday morning when the sport utility vehicle she was driving rolled over on Five Forks Road northwest of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Rebecca Jo Horst was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:48 a.m. by the Franklin County Coroner’s Office, according to a state police news release.

The cause of death was listed as multiple blunt-force trauma.

The single-vehicle crash happened at 5:55 a.m. near 10355 Five Forks Road, about a mile south of the intersection with Pa. 316, Trooper Shaun Maher said.

Horst was driving north on Five Forks Road in a 2002 Jeep Liberty SUV when she lost control of the vehicle and ran off the right side of the road, the release said.

The SUV rolled over twice and came to rest in a field facing south. Horst was thrown from the vehicle.

Horst was the only person in the vehicle, and no other vehicles were involved, Maher said.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
