According to a Bedford Police report, 43-year-old April Edwards of Bedford was traveling east on 25th Street from Washington Avenue when her 2002 Chevrolet Impala went off the south side of the road and struck a utility pole and mailbox.

Edwards told police there was a vehicle in her lane of travel and she swerved to miss the vehicle. This action caused her to run off the roadway.

"During our short conversation, the driver passed out," Bedford Police Officer Booth wrote in his report. "I was able to revive her by using a sternum rub, but she was having trouble staying awake.
