The vehicle entered the left lane and went off the road where it traveled about 70 feet before striking an embankment.

After hitting the embankment the car continued north for about 60 feet and then rolled onto its roof, coming to rest on the west side of the road.

Three passengers, Mahendra Rai, 30, Chinta Monikarki, 50, and Sabitra Monger, 25, all of Scranton, were injured and treated at the scene by Ryan Township ambulance personnel.
