(WOIO) - An elderly missing Mogadore woman is in a Youngstown Hospital after driving off a Pennsylvania bridge under construction and landing in the creek below.

This, amid a frantic search for 78-year-old Bonnie Lafontaine. Friends and family had been looking for the woman after she disappeared on Wednesday after dropping her two great-grandkids off at school.

Police tell 19 Action News she apparently just drove around all day, eventually crossing the Pennsylvania border.

The accident happened just before 1AM on Thursday.

Lafontaine was life-flighted to St. Elizabeth's Hospital. No word on her condition at this time.
