State Police Respond to Accidents

Pennsylvania State Police responded to several accidents yesterday.

A one-vehicle crash occurred along Route 85 in Cowanshannock Township shortly after midnight. The front passenger side bumper of a 2001 Subaru Legacy impacted portions of a tree that had fallen across the roadway. The driver was not identified. Police state that they responded to a separate crash as well at the same location due to the tree.

Another crash occurred at 12:15 PM on Route 66 near the Calhoon Road in Wayne Township. A 2007 Lexus RX350 driven by 58-year-old Amy Dunn of Irwin was in the passing lane when a deer crossed the road. The vehicle skidded on loose gravel causing the vehicle to cross the double yellow lines into the opposing lane and striking the guide rail. Upon impact, the vehicle overturned up to six times and came to rest in a corn field.

Dunn sustained injuries to her left shoulder and was taken by Clarion Ambulance to ACMH Hospital. The vehicle was towed by Terry’s Towing.

Dunn was cited with failure to drive her vehicle at a safe speed.
