State College Woman Seriously Injured Following Car Crash On Atherton Street

A State College woman was seriously injured following a two-vehicle crash on North Atherton Street at Hillcrest Avenue in the early morning hours on Thursday, November 3.

At approximately 2:15 a.m., State College Police arrived at the scene after a Ford Edge, which was operated by a 28-year-old State College woman, crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into a southbound tractor-trailer driven by a 63-year-old Altoona man, according to a SCPD release.

Centre Life Link Emergency Medical Services, with assistance from police, extracted the woman, who was unconscious, from the Ford. She was transported by ambulance to a medical helicopter and taken to University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Altoona for treatment of her injuries. She later regained consciousness, and the driver of the other vehicle wasn’t injured, police say.

Both vehicles were towed away from the scene with “disabling damage,” and the cause of the crash is still being investigated.

The State College Police Department is urging anyone with more information regarding the incident to contact the department at (814) 234-7150, send an email, or submit an anonymous tip.
