State police at Frackville reported investigating a one-vehicle crash about 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, outside Tamaqua in Walker Township.

Troopers said a 16-year-old male from New Ringgold was operating a 2003 Ford Escape southbound on Reynolds Road when he failed to negotiate a left hand curve. The car went onto the west shoulder and traveled about 50 feet sideways into a wooded area where it struck a tree.

The teen was not injured but damages to the vehicle were disabling, troopers said.
