Slippery Roads Cause One-Vehicle Crash in Beaver Township

police-lights-3BEAVER TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Punxsutawney-based State Police say a one-vehicle accident occurred yesterday morning on Heathville-Ohl Road, west of Taylor Road, in Beaver Township, Jefferson County.

Police say this one-vehicle crash occurred around 8:03 a.m. as a 2015 Toyota 4Runner – driven by Tracie L. Bugay, of Punxsutawney – was traveling northbound on Heathville/Ohl Road.

The Toyota was negotiating a steep downhill grade on extremely slippery road conditions, and Bugay lost control of it, causing it to exit the east side of the road.

The Toyota’s front end stopped; however, the rear end continued to slide down the hill in a clockwise manner impacting a tree off the east side of the roadway, according to police.

The Toyota came to a final rest off the east side of the roadway facing south.

Bugay was using a seat belt and was not injured.

The Toyota sustained disabling damage and was towed from the scene by Walker’s Towing.
