Pleasant Gap Teenager Reported Injured in Car Wreck
A 17-year-old from Pleasant Gap was reportedly injured after losing control of his SUV over the weekend.
Police say they believe Montana Moyer fell asleep while driving along East College Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
It happened as Moyer's SUV approached the fork with the Benner Pike near the Nittany Mall. Moyer's vehicle hurtled off the roadway, careening through bushes and a grassy area near the McDonald's restuarant.
Gouges in the grass are still visible from where Moyer’s SUV passed through. Police say Moyer's SUV narrowly missed some trees. The vehicle jumped over some small hills, coming to a stop in the McDonald’s parking lot.
A trailer carrying an ATV that Moyer was towing came loose during the accident, leaving the trailer, ATV and SUV severely damaged.
Moyer was reportedly taken to the hospital. There's no word on the extent of his injuries.
