NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (AP), Aug 27 - Police in New York say a woman had a sneezing fit that caused her to drive off a road, crash into several trees and plow through a fence.

Authorities say 62-year-old Mary Jane Amelio (uh-MEEL'-ee-oh), of Clinton, was driving Thursday morning in New Hartford, near Utica, when she began to sneeze.

New Hartford police say her car left the road, hit several small trees and crashed through a fence before coming to a stop.

Amelio was taken to a hospital, where she was listed in fair condition after suffering injuries to her head, neck, back and leg.

Police say she was ticketed for failure to keep right.
