Penn State Student Killed In Single-Vehicle Crash

A Penn State student died after a single-vehicle accident Friday afternoon on North Atherton Street.

The victim, who was the passenger, is a male in his early 20s and his identity is being withheld pending family notification. Ferguson Township Police Sgt. Chris Albright said the driver of a Nissan Pathfinder SUV was attempting to turn left from Blue Course Drive onto North Atherton Street northbound when he lost control of the vehicle.

The SUV went over the curb and into grass, then began to spin sideways and rolled over. The passenger was partially ejected from the vehicle and died as a result.

The driver is also a male Penn State student in his early 20s. Albright said he appeared to be uninjured but was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center for evaluation.

The northbound lanes of North Atherton Street will remain closed at the intersection with Clinton Avenue/Blue Course Drive until accident reconstruction experts examine the scene. Southbound lanes between North Hills Place and Blue Course Drive also were closed for a short period but have since reopened.
