DuBois Math Teacher Killed In Crash On Rt. 255

DuBOIS - A DuBois Area School District teacher was killed in a car accident Wednesday morning, according to a press release from the district.

Ridgway-based state police said Benjamin P. Friedl, 27, St. Marys, who taught high school math, died as a result of the accident, which occurred at 6:35 a.m. on Route 255 in Fox Township, Elk County.

Police said Friedl was driving a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix south on Route 255, just north of Pontzer Road, when the vehicle spun counterclockwise and crossed into the northbound lane into the path of a 1994 Dodge Dakota driven by Thomas S. Resch, 41, Kersey.

Resch suffered major injuries. His condition is unknown.

He was a 2004 graduate of Penn State University and 2000 Elk County Catholic High School graduate. While at ECC, Friedl participated in cross country, basketball and track and field.
