Nesquehoning crash seriously injures one
LARRY NEFF/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS
At least one person was seriously injured Sunday night when involved in a one-vehicle crash along SR209 in Nesquehoning. The crash occurred just after 9 p.m. as the vehicle was traveling north, just past the Wash Shanty Hill. The driver apparently lost control crossing the roadway and possibly rolling the unit before coming to rest on its wheels along the south berm. One victim, believed to have been ejected, was found lying on the ground outside the vehicle. That victim was treated at the scene then flown by Penn Star helicopter to a Lehigh Valley area trauma center. Nesquehoning and Lansford fire police maintained traffic control, shutting down SR209 for over an hour. Responding to the scene were the Hauto, Nesquehoning and New Columbus fire companies. The American Fire Company of Lansford set up a landing zone for Penn Star at the Panther Valley High School. Nesquehoning police Officer Carl Breiner is investigating the incident.
