Stu­dent crashes, flips car

Souderton Independent - - OBITUARIES - By Ge­off Patton

A wet road­way con­trib­uted to the cause of a one-car crash on Lower Road near School­house Road in Fran­co­nia Town­ship Oct. 19.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, an 18-year-old Soud­er­ton Area High School stu­dent, driv­ing alone in a Chevro­let Im­pala, was on his way to the high school on Lower Road when he lost con­trol on the wet road­way as he was mak­ing a left turn onto Lower from School­house.

He struck a curb and the car rolled onto its left side, com­ing to rest on the grass next to the road be­tween a util­ity pole and a sup­port ca­ble for the pole. The driver was able to get out of the car unas­sisted, said Fran­coQLD SROLFH 2IfiFHU GOHQQ Kranich.

The driver was not injured but was taken to Le­high Val­ley Hospi­tal by a Har­leysville Area Med­i­cal Emer­gency Ser­vice am­bu­lance for eval­u­a­tion.

Re­spond­ing mem­bers of the Per­se­v­er­ence Fire Com­pany of Soud­er­ton were able to push the car into an up­right po­si­tion be­fore it was towed.
