At least one person was injured Wednesday morning when involved in a single car crash along Route 93 in Nesquehoning.

The crash occurred just after 11 a.m. as the driver was traveling south about two miles north of Route 209.

The operator lost control on a straightaway entering the right berm impacting with a tree. Nesquehoning police are investigating the incident.


Thomas Wolfe immortalized the phrase, "You can't go home again."

I don't know about you, but I've had the experience of trying to go back to my beloved hometown, hoping to see the happy place of my youth.

The last line of the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor states that "I will always uphold the constitution, my community and the agency I serve."

During his 34 years of life, Boston police officer John Moynihan has done service in all three areas with honor and dignity.
