Woman Flown to UPMC Presbyterian Following Route 219 Crash

BELL TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash early Monday morning on State Route 219, in Bell Township, Clearfield County.

According to Punxsutawney-based State Police, the accident occurred around 6:38 a.m. on Monday, February 12, on Route 219 about two miles south of Mahaffey Borough, in an area referred to as “Cattlepin Curve.”

A 1997 International Harvester 9400 driven by 28-year-old Nathan E. McClelland of Madera, Pa., was traveling south on Route 219, while a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by 58-year-old Billee Adams, of Hillsdale, was traveling north.

As McClelland entered a right-hand curve, his vehicle began to slide on the icy roadway. The vehicle traveled off the west berm and impacted a guide rail and then began to rotate clockwise. It traveled back onto the southbound lane and slid across the northbound lane where the front of Adams’ vehicle impacted the left rear of McClelland’s vehicle.

Adams suffered suspected serious injuries and was flown from the scene to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.

McClelland was not injured.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts, and multiple airbags in Adams’ vehicle were deployed.

Mahaffey Fire Department, Mahaffey Ambulance, and Jefferson County EMS assisted at the scene.

Adams’ vehicle was towed from the scene by Scott’s Auto, Towing & Repair of Cherry Tree.
