Millville man killed when truck crashes into roadside creek
MILLVILLE - A borough man was killed when his vehicle crashed into Little Fishing Creek Monday evening in Columbia County.
State police at Bloomsburg reported Franklin Hays III, 34, died as a result of the 9:15 p.m. crash on Route 42, just south of Route 442.
Police said Hays was traveling north in a 1999 GMC 2500 pickup truck when he lost control of the vehicle and it traveled off the road and struck guide rail on the east berm. The truck then hit the bridge over Little Fishing Creek and went airborne, striking a rock embankment north of the creek, then coming to rest on its wheels in the creek.
Police said Hays was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, but that his airbag did not deploy.
