Teen escapes injury in Schuylkill crash
A 17-year-old boy from Valley View escaped injuries in a one-vehicle crash Jan. 18 at 6:06 p.m. on Township Route 450 in Hubley Township, Schuylkill County.
State police at the Schuylkill Haven barracks said the teen will be charged for driving on roadways laned for traffic.
Police said he was driving a 2003 Ford Focus southbound when he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to leave the paved portion of the road and travel about 20 feet in a slight ditch. The vehicle then re-entered the roadway, turned sideways and traveled about 34 feet before striking a tree on the east side of the roadway.
