A 41-year-old Duluth woman was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday when her vehicle was struck from behind by an alleged inattentive driver on Rice Lake Road.

Amy Lynn Vittorio was turning her 2005 Chevrolet Impala into the Snowflake Center about 11 a.m. when it was hit by a 2002 GMC Sierra being driven by Nicole Angeline Jordahl, 21, of Duluth, police said.

Jordahl told a Duluth police officer that she was distracted when she reached down for something and when she looked up she saw the Impala stopped, waiting to make a turn, and was unable to stop in time to avoid the crash.

Jordahl was cited for inattentive driving and for not wearing a seatbelt. Vittorio was wearing a seat belt and was transported to St. Luke's hospital.
