1 Teen Dead, 2nd Seriously Hurt in Susquehanna County Crash
Pennsylvania State Police says a Wyoming County teen is dead in an early morning crash on March 20 in Susquehanna County.
Authorities say 18-year-old Caleb Earl of Nicholson was driving on Bill Kostic Road just west of State Route 2003 in Lathrop Township at 1:53 a.m. when the car’s brakes were activated and the Pontiac Grand Prix went into a skid, spinning off the road and hitting an embankment. Earl and a 14-year-old Nicholson boy who was riding with him were ejected as the vehicle rolled.
The younger teen was airlifted to Geisinger Medical Center with serious injuries. Earl died as a result of his injuries.
The police report indicates neither teen was wearing a seat belt.
Montrose Minute Men and Commonwealth Ambulance squads assisted at the scene along with the Nicholson Fire Department, Springville Fire Department, Lake Care Fire Department and Guthrie Air.
