Sunbury area man critical after his car hit, flipped a parked car
ROCKEFELLER TOWNSHIP - A Sunbury area man was listed in critical condition Thursday evening following a crash on Route 61 earlier in the day in which his car hit a parked vehicle, causing it to flip onto its roof, and a home.
State police at Stonington said a Mercury Cougar driven by Jason Attinger, of 225 Black Mill Road, Sunbury, was traveling south on Route 61 near Carroll Road about 2:24 a.m. Thursday when the car crossed the double yellow lines and entered the northbound lane. Police believe Attinger overcorrected and his car went off the highway, across a lawn and struck the parked vehicle, causing it to flip over, before hitting the house.
Attinger was removed from the vehicle by emergency personnel and taken to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
Assisting were members of the Sunbury, East Sunbury, Stonington and Upper Augusta Township fire departments and Americus Ambulance.
The vehicle that flipped appeared to be parked close to the house. Its roof appeared crushed.
The accident occurred about 4 miles east of Sunbury.
