REDBANK TWP., Pa. (EYT) – One person was killed and two were seriously injured in a head-on crash that occurred on State Route 28 in Redbank Township last night.

According to Clarion-based State Police, around 8:16 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 41-year-old David B. Anthony, of Mayport, and 46-year-old John J. Himes, of Brockport, were involved in the collision.

Police say the crash occurred as a 2004 Ford Escape driven by Anthony was traveling south in the northbound lane on Route 28, south of Dewey Road, in Redbank Township, Clarion County. His vehicle struck Himes’ 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe as the vehicle was traveling north in the northbound lane on Route 28. The left front of the Ford Escape struck the left front of the Hyundai Santa Fe.

After the Ford struck the Hyundai, the Ford began a counterclockwise spin and traveled approximately 155 feet in a southerly direction and exited the west side of Route 28. Upon exiting the roadway, the vehicle continued approximately 27 additional feet in a southern direction and rolled approximately 270 degrees. The vehicle came to a final rest on the left side of the vehicle facing southeast approximately 39 inches west of Route 28.

Upon being struck by the Ford, the Hyundai traveled approximately 105 feet in a northerly direction along the east side of Route 28. The vehicle exited the roadway and struck an embankment with its right front. The vehicle then spun in a clockwise direction and slid in a northerly direction for an additional 35 feet. The vehicle came to a final rest facing southeast straddling the northbound lane fog line.

Anthony was killed as a result of the crash. He was not using a seat belt.

Himes and a passenger in his vehicle – 47-year-old Rachelle A. Himes, of Brockport – both suffered suspected serious injuries. They were transported to Allegheny General Hospital.

A 10-year-old male passenger, of Brockport, in Himes’ vehicle suffered suspected minor injuries and was transported to Penn Highlands Brookville.
