Susquehanna Crash While Fleeing Police Leaves Driver Hurt
A Susquehanna County man is reported to have had a lot of things going against him a few days ago including suffering injuries after crashing a vehicle while allegedly trying to outrun authorities.
Pennsylvania State Police say a Hallstead man suffered what were believed to be minor injuries when he was partially ejected from a vehicle that crashed on Harmony Road late last month.
Troopers say 42-year-old Craig Anderson was fleeing police shortly before 4 p-m May 28 when he lost control of a Ford Escort ZX2 on a slight bend on the roadway. Officers say Anderson was not wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected.
His passenger, 37-year-old Amanda Woodruff of Susquehanna was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt.
Investigators say Anderson is charged with Careless Driving. The news release from the Gibson Barracks did not say why Anderson was fleeing police.
