| March 19, 2013

SANDYCREEK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – Franklin-based State Police say around 5:45 a.m. on March 18, a one-car rollover accident occurred on State Route 8, south of N. Pecan Drive, in Sandycreek Township, Venango County.

According to police, 18-year-old Tony D. Umstead, of Franklin, was traveling south on SR 8 in a 1991 Toyota Camry, and as he was negotiating a right hand bend in the road, he struck a patch of black ice and slid out of control.

The car slid off the west edge of the road and struck the embankment which caused it to roll over approximately four times. The car came to rest on its wheels facing north in the west berm, police say.

Umstead was using a seat belt and suffered minor injuries.

Due to the icy patches, he will not be cited for any violation.

Members of the Sandycreek Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.
