Big Cove Tannery Man Hospitalized
A Big Cove Tannery man was hospitalized last Thursday after sustaining what was believed to be life-threatening injuries during a single vehicle accident in Thompson Township.
Pennsylvania State Police in McConnellsburg stated 19- year- old Christopher Ray Hinish was travelling southbound on Thompson Road at a “high rate of speed.” Hinish’s 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 went onto the western berm, struck a guiderail and ran into a ditch.
Police did not indicate if Hinish was wearing a seat belt during the 7 p.m. accident. He was taken directly to Washington County Hospital due to his condition.
State police were aided on the scene by Bard’s Towing as well as Needmore Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Co.
