How did the accident happen?
A deadly collision involving a single car took place on Sunday evening in West Penn Township, resulting in the death of a male inhabitant of the area. The driver was driving west on Route 895 just before the intersection with Troxell Valley Road when the event took place. The driver lost control of the vehicle near the intersection. The incident took place shortly after 8 o’clock in the evening. After rolling over many times, the truck eventually came to a stop on its roof after it had drifted over the eastbound berm.
It was determined that the individual had passed away at the site by a deputy coroner from Schuylkill County. The West Penn Fire Company and medic units were among the first to arrive, along with other emergency responders shortly after. An inquiry into the incident has been opened by the local township police, and the West Penn fire police have taken the necessary steps to restrict the route.
