One person died and another one injured in a crash on Route 309 Friday afternoon.
According to Skook News, Rush Township Police responded to a motor vehicle collision on Route 309, on Mile Hill, where a Volkswagen Beetle operated by Larry Wanamaker, of Palmerton, crossed over the median and traveled into the path of a pickup truck owned and operated by David Green of Hazleton.
Green was transported for care at the Lehigh Valley Hospital Hazleton Campus. Wanamaker was unresponsive upon police arrival at the scene and was later pronounced dead at the hospital by emergency room personnel.
Authorities said a mechanical failure of Wanamaker’s vehicle caused it to cross over the median and travel into the northbound lanes.
