October 16, 2013

CHEST TOWNSHIP, CLEARFIELD COUNTY — One juvenile female was killed and three others were injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred on State Route 3006 (Westover Road) in Chest Township, Clearfield County at 3:41 p.m. on Tuesday, Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police reported.

The crash took place when a 2003 Ford F-250 was traveling south on Westover Road at a high rate of speed, the report said. The truck crossed over into the northbound lane of travel and proceeded to leave the roadway.

The truck traveled approximately 134 feet off the roadway before impacting a tree with right-front hood/bumper. The truck then spun clockwise and impacted a gate and a post before rolling over twice and coming to a final rest.

The driver and two of the passengers were flown from the scene via helicopter — two with injuries of an unknown severity and one with serious injuries — the report stated. The fourth juvenile was transported by ambulance with unknown injuries.

Police reported Wednesday that an update became available at 1 p.m. that one of the girls had passed away from her injuries.

WJAC-TV reported that officials confirmed all four girls attended Harmony Area High School.

Police were assisted at the scene by Westover, Mahaffey and Irvona Fire Departments and several EMS units.
