Slippery Road Conditions Lead to Early Afternoon Crash in Bloom Township

BLOOM TWP., Pa. (EYT) – DuBois-based State Police say slippery road conditions led to a crash early Monday afternoon in Bloom Township.

According to police, around 12:33 p.m. on Monday, March 23, 50-year-old Dale E. Tozer, of Curwensville, was operating a 2008 GM Canyon, traveling west on Greenville Pike, just east of Evergreen Road, in Bloom Township, Clearfield County.

Police say Tozer was traveling downhill when he lost control of the vehicle due to slippery road conditions, crossed over into the eastbound lane, and sideswiped a telephone pole. The vehicle then continued down over a small embankment and struck a tree head-on. It continued another 50 feet west and came to a final rest in a grassy area off the eastbound lane of Greenville Pike.

Tozer was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.

The vehicle sustained disabling damage to the rear passenger side as well as moderate damage to the front end.

Tozer was cited for a speed violation.
