Brockway Teen Escapes Injury After Slamming into Parked Vehicle

SNYDER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – According to DuBois-based State Police, a Brockway teen escaped injury after hitting a parked vehicle on April 9, in Snyder Township, Jefferson County.

Police say the incident occurred around 8:20 p.m. as a 16-year-old male driver, of Brockway, was traveling west on Horizon Drive.

The teen driver lost control of his 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer and traveled across the roadway onto the southern berm, according to police.

The vehicle then traveled up an embankment in a southwest direction for approximately 25 feet. The front end of the Trailblazer then struck the front end of a 2006 Toyota Tacoma that was parked in front of a residence located 20 feet south of Horizon Drive, police say.

After impact, the Tacoma was pushed 15 feet backwards from its parked position while the Trailblazer spun counter-clockwise. The right side of the rear-end of the Trailblazer then struck the left rear side of the Tacoma before both vehicles came to a final rest, according to police.

The teen driver was uninjured in the crash.

He was cited with a traffic violation.
