SHAMOKIN - A 23-year-old city man suffered serious injuries early Wednesday when his car crashed into a parked vehicle in the first block of North Rock Street.

Nico Tovey, of 25 Gold St., may be charged in connection with the 4:15 a.m. accident that awoke several neighbors.

Shamokin police reported Tovey was driving a silver vehicle that struck a parked red sport utility vehicle in front of 26 N. Rock St. When police arrived, Tovey was found unconscious in the vehicle, prompting Cpl. Jarrod Scandle to open the door and free him.

Tovey was transported by AREA Services to Geisinger-Shamokin Area Community Hospital, where he underwent emergency room treatment before being transferred to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville. Tovey was listed in serious condition Wednesday night, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

In addition to Scandle and AREA Services, also providing assistance at the scene were Patrolman William Miner, city fire police and personnel from Shamokin Emergency Squad and Friendship Fire Company.

The scene was cleared at 5 a.m.
