| October 12, 2021

CRANBERRY TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Franklin-based State Police responded to two consecutive crashes that took place on Deep Hollow Road last week.

According to police, the initial crash occurred on Monday, October 4, around 3:16 p.m. on Deep Hollow Road just north of Bredinsburg Road, in Cranberry Township, Venango County.

Police say a known 16-year-old male from Oil City was operating a 2010 Ford Focus traveling south on Deep Hollow Road when the teen lost control of the vehicle and went off the east side of the road and struck an embankment.

Following the initial impact, the vehicle traveled back onto the roadway and came to a final rest blocking both lanes of travel.

The teen driver was using a seat belt and was not injured.

The vehicle was disabled as a result of the crash.

The teen driver was cited for a speed violation.

Police say a short time later, at approximately 3:26 p.m., a second crash occurred in the same area.

According to police, 29-year-old Tyler M. Greene, of Seneca, was operating a 1996 Ford Bronco traveling north on Deep Hollow Road just north of Bredinsburg Road when he came upon the scene of the initial crash.

Police say despite sufficient notice of the crash scene, because Grene was traveling too fast, he was unable to bring his vehicle to a safe stop. The vehicle then went off the east side of the roadway in an attempt to miss a parked vehicle, went up an embankment, and rolled onto its left side.

Greene was using a seat belt and was not injured.

His vehicle was disabled as a result of the crash.

Greene was cited for a speed violation.

Community Ambulance Service also assisted at the crash scenes.
