• Harry J. Myers, 33, of Beech Creek, Pennsylvania, was cited with failure to control after a single-vehicle crash on Wednesday at 11:28 p.m.

Myers was operating a semitrailer westbound in the 14,000 block of state Route 119 and when slowing down to make a right hand turn, his vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway, went through a ditch and hit an old concrete sign base. The collision caused the left diesel tank on his purple 2005 Peterbilt Motors truck to break open, causing fuel to leak into the ditch and parking lot. The truck then came to a stop in the ditch.

The truck owned by Myers Brothers Trucking was towed from the scene by Mayse Towing.
