The Carlisle Sentinel is reporting that two people were injured after a single-vehicle crash in Upper Allen Township this past Saturday night.
At 8 p.m., Upper Allen Township Police said they observed a truck driven by Kendall Steager, 19, of Camp Hill, with three juvenile passengers, exit a roadway and start driving in circles in a corn field in the 900 block of Allendale Road in the township. Once Steager realized he was being watched, police said he fled the corn field at a very high rate of speed and continued at a high rate of speed south on Allendale Road.
In the 1200 block of Allendale Road, police said Steager was traveling too fast to negotiate a curve in the road, and his vehicle left the road. He initially struck a ground-level decorative piece of a telephone pole, drove over that pole, drove through some bushes, then struck a tree where his truck came to rest.
Two of the 3 juveniles suffered injuries and were transported to the hospital. Their conditions were not known at the time of this news release.
Upper Allen Police were assisted on the scene by West Shore EMS, Hampden Township EMS and the Upper Allen Fire Department. If you have any information about the Camp Hill car accident contact the Upper Allen Township police at 100 Gettysburg Pike, Mechanicsburg, PA
