  • State police investigated an accident that occurred Tuesday on State Park Road in Pine Township. Further, a Philipsburg woman was traveling south and her left, rear wheel was well-rusted on her vehicle; it caused the tire to rub. The woman subsequently lost control of her vehicle, which exited the roadway via the west berm, continued across both lanes of traffic and exited the east berm before impacting with an embankment. The woman was cited for the accident, state police said.
  • State police investigated a hit-and-run accident that occurred Wednesday at the intersection of Main and Franklin streets in Coalport Borough. Upon arrival police found that a pick-up truck was traveling north on Main Street and at a speed in excess of 60 miles per hour in a posted 25-miles-per-hour zone. Its operator lost control and impacted a legally-parked Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn SL1 and Pontiac Sunfire. Upon impact with the last vehicle, the truck came to an immediate final rest. However, the operator put the truck in reverse and struck the hood of the Saturn SL1 and then fled the accident scene. State police said that the passenger’s side front tire of the truck, including the rim, was torn off; as a result, when the operator fled, only three wheels were in operation on the truck. Because the damaged area of the truck was in contact with the roadway, state police said it created gouge marks, which extended for one-mile and allowed for the location of the truck in Houtzdale. Traffic citations were filed against the operator of the truck through the district court, state police said.
