| January 10, 2018

IRWIN TWP., Pa. (EYT) — A California man and an Illinois man were involved in a traffic accident Friday in Irwin Township.

Damian Hagglund, 40, of Beverly Hills, CA., was driving a 2017 Nissan Altima west on Interstate 80 toward Barkeyville when he lost control of his vehicle and spun out in the middle of the roadway before coming to a stop in the travel lanes.

A 2004 Freightliner operated by Maher Alsarhan attempted to stop, but slid sideways with the trailer going off onto the berm to impact with the guide rails, continuing to slide until it impacted with the Hagglund’s Altima.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Hagglund reported minor injuries. He was cited for failing to drive at a safe speed.

Clintonville Volunteer Fire Department and PennDOT assisted at the scene.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene by Hovis Auto Wrecking.
