Hancock Teens Escape Injury
Two Hancock, Md., teens escaped harm during a single vehicle accident along Covalt Road on Sunday, December 19, in Thompson Township.
State police, McConnellsburg, reported 18-year-old Stefan S. Sanders was driving too fast while approaching a right-hand turn and locked up the brakes of his westbound 2010 Hyundai Accent. The vehicle slid back and forth across both lanes and into a tree on the northern berm.
Sanders was wearing a seat belt during the 3:30 a.m. accident as was his passenger, a 16- year- old male. Sanders will be cited by state police for failure to drive a vehicle at safe speeds.
