Driver Attempts to Avoid Snow Plow, Rolls Down Embankment

SNYDER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – DuBois-based State Police say a one-vehicle crash occurred on State Route 28, in Snyder Township, Jefferson County.

McDade suffered moderate injuries, while her passenger – Timothy S. McDade, 30, of Brockway – suffered minor injuries in the crash.
