Comments Off

Reports from Shamokin, Pennsylvania are that three people were injured when their vehicles each rolled multiple times during a traffic accident in a steady rain at approximately 5:43 a.m. Tuesday June 19, 2012 on Route 61 near Holly Road in Shamokin Township.

Robert L. Faust Jr., 43, of Shamokin, was trapped for about 30 minutes after his 2004 Ford F-150 truck hit a 2004 Mazda SUV, driven by Brandon M. Fox, 29, of Shamokin, and then went out of control, hit a large tree, traveled through heavy brush and came to rest on its side. Elysburg and Stonington firefighters extricated Faust.

A second occupant in the pickup, Randy D. Long, 29, of Coal Township, was also transported for treatment.

Police said Faust, Long and Fox all suffered moderate injuries. According to a Geisinger spokesperson Tuesday evening, Faust is listed in serious condition, Long in fair condition and Fox was treated and released.

State police at Stonington report Faust was passing vehicles on Route 61 near Holly Road; when he attempted to re-enter the northbound lane, his vehicle struck Fox’s Mazda in the rear, causing the SUV to roll over multiple times.

The truck continued north, struck a mail box and then also rolled multiple times before coming to rest.

Police said speed was a factor in the crash, and that Faust will be cited for driving at an unsafe speed.

Assisting police were members of the Stonington Fire Department, Elysburg Fire and Ambulance and AREA Services.
