Police Investigating Fatal Car Crash

State College Police are investigating a fatal car crash that occurred at the 3600 block of E. College Ave.

Police found a vehicle at that location this morning 20 yards off the roadway, and the male inside was deceased. According to the release, the vehicle was going eastbound on College Avenue and left the roadway due to an undetermined reason and crashed into a tree. Police were notified of the accident this morning when passing motorists saw the vehicle. It is unknown when the accident occurred.

Anyone with information regarding the crash should call police at 814-234-7150. The identification of the motorist is being withheld until his next of kin is notified. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.

Update, 11/3: Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers released the name of the man found dead in the crash, according to the Centre Daily Times.

Ryan C. Wagner, 22, of Howard, was ruled dead of blunt force trauma, and the death was ruled accidental. Our thoughts remain with Wagner’s family and friends.

Wagner is not listed as a student in the Penn State directory.
