Crash Seriously Injures Four Susquehanna County Teens
A car crash seriously injured four Susquehanna County teenagers Friday afternoon. The crash happened about 1:35 p.m. Friday as a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo carrying the teens traveled west at a high rate of speed on Stack Road in Thompson Twp. The vehicle went airborne while cresting a hill. The driver of the vehicle, a 16 year old girl from Susquehanna, then lost control, traveled onto the berm, struck a dirt pile and rolled about 160 feet before hitting a utility pole, state troopers said. The three passengers were ejected before the vehicle came to a rest on its roof, troopers said. None of the people in the vehicle were wearing seatbelts, troopers said. The driver and one passenger, another 16 year old girl from Susquehanna, went to Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. One of the other passengers, a 17 year old boy from Union Dale, was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley in Wilkes-Barre and a fourth passenger, a 16 year old boy from Thompson, was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. The football game between Susquehanna Community and Dunmore scheduled for Friday night was postponed after the crash, said Susquehanna coach Kyle Cook. The game will be played tonight at 7 p.m. in Dunmore.
