According to Franklin-based State Police, a 17-year-old Seneca female was traveling on Route 227, attempting to negotiate a right curve in the road. She lost control of her 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier on the wet roadway due to the condition of a rear tire and possibly the power steering failing.

The vehicle proceeded across the oncoming lane of traffic, rotated 180 degrees, and struck a pole on the passenger’s side, disabling the vehicle, police say.

The 17-year-old and a passenger – 20-year-old Phillip A. Anthony, of Titusville – were both transported to UPMC Northwest.

The extent of their injuries are unknown.

The teen was charged with a traffic violation, according to police.
