83-Year-Old State College Resident Dies In One-Vehicle Crash Downtown

Update, 5 p.m.

The State College Police Department issued a correction to its original press release to clarify the crash took place on Sunday, November 12. It was originally reported by the police that the crash occurred on Saturday, November 11.

Original Story:

An 83-year-old State College resident died Saturday afternoon around 1 p.m. in a single-vehicle crash in the 200 block of A Alley between South Allen Street and South Pugh Street.

The driver was maneuvering a Hyundai Elantra through the Schlow Centre Region Library parking lot when the vehicle accelerated into A Alley and struck a concrete wall of a construction site, according to State College police.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, and a 78-year-old female passenger was flown to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. Police said the passenger sustained severe injuries but is listed in stable condition.

An investigation is open, and police don’t believe drugs or alcohol to be factors in the crash.
