HUSTON TWP., Pa. (EYT) – DuBois-based State Police say early this morning a teen fled the scene of an accident after crashing airborne into a residence located along State Route 153, at the intersection with Horseshoe Drive, in Huston Township, Clearfield County.

According to police, around 2:20 a.m. on August 29, a known, 19-year-old Penfield woman was traveling north on Route 153, and her 2003 Saturn Sedan traveled across the roadway and struck a guardrail.
