Medical Center as of Monday evening, May 28, 2012. The infant, who was properly restrained in a child safety seat, suffered serious injuries in the crash, which occurred on Interstate 81 south at the College Street ramp in South Middleton Township.
State Police at Carlisle said Benjamin Reid, 18, of Bloserville was attempting to merge onto Interstate 81 northbound. He was unaware of a vehicle driven by Todd Friscia, 30, of Carlisle in his path as he began to enter the right lane. The two vehicles didn’t make contact, but Friscia took evasive action and lost control of the vehicle he was driving, police said. The vehicle spun clockwise and left the road before traveling over an embankment and hitting a tree with the rear driver’s side door, police said.
According to police, Todd Friscia and passengers Julie Friscia, 27, of Carlisle and Jonathan Miller, 30, of Carlisle also suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital.
