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.

UPDATE - Monday, August 18, 12:30 PM:

Public relations staff at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville have confirmed that Moyer was transferred to the hospital from Mt. Nittany Medical Center. Moyer is currently in "serious" condition, though they could not release further details. According to the Geisinger website, "serious condition" includes the following factors: "Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable."
