Atherton Street Crash Sends Man to Hospital

A single car accident sent one man to the hospital and backed up traffic for about an hour on N. Atherton St. on Monday evening.

It took nearly 30 minutes to remove the man from the vehicle, which was completely totaled with the engine sitting in front of the car and the bumper laying across the street. The vehicle jumped the curb and struck a traffic light pole on N. Atherton St. near Champs. Ferguson Township Sgt. Chris Albright identified the man as a 22-year old and said he suffered injuries mostly on his legs. He was conscious when he was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Albright said that speed likely played a factor in the crash but not much more is known at this time.
