Slippery Roads Cause Rollover Crash in North Mahoning Township

NORTH MAHONING TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Police say slippery road conditions led to a pickup truck rolling over an embankment in North Mahoning Township on Wednesday morning.

According to police, around 9:03 a.m. on Wednesday, March 21, 18-year-old Preston E. Brubaker, of Rochester Mills, was operating a 2001 Ford F150, traveling east on Locust Road (State Route 1042) just west of Knox Road in North Mahoning Township.

At the time of the crash, there was heavy snow accumulation causing slippery road conditions. The vehicle was traveling on a downhill slope when it came into contact with a snow-covered surface. Brubaker was unable to maintain control of the vehicle while negotiating a left-hand curve in the road; the vehicle began sliding off the road in a southern direction, then rolled over the embankment, and subsequently struck a tree.

The vehicle came to a final rest on the passenger side.

Brubaker was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.

The vehicle sustained disabling damage and was towed from the scene by Reybuck’s Southside Towing Service.

Perry Township Fire Department assisted at the scene and provided traffic control.
