No Injuries In Wednesday Night Crash South Of Shinglehouse

No One Hurt In 2 Car Crash Near Shinglehouse Legion
State Police released details of a Wednesday night 2 car crash on Route 44 South of Shinglehouse in Sharon Township at 8:39 PM.


A 17 year old Female from Coudersport, PA was driving a blue 2002 Dodge Neon 4 dr. sedan south on Route 44, about a mile south of Shinglehouse.

Conrad John Scholl, 71, of Shinglehouse, PA was driving a white 2007 Nissan TK north on Rt. 44 and attempted to make a left hand turn into the Legion Road.

The 17 year old observed the opposing Nisson enter her lane of travel and applied the brakes of her Neon. She left over 93 feet of tire marks on the roadway before striking the rear passenger side area of the Nissan with the front passenger side of the Neon.

The Nissan spun clockwise coming to rest along Legion Road.

The Neon continued along RT. 44 about 174 feet south of the point of impact, before coming to rest .

Both operators were wearing seat belts and were not injured.

Shinglehouse Fire and Ambulance services responded to the scene to assist. The Neon was towed from the scene by Dave Black's Body Shop and the Nissan was moderately damaged but functional and was removed privately.

The 17 year old operator of the Neon will be cited for (not) DRIVING VEHICLE AT SAFE SPEED in District Court 55-4-01.

I'm assuming the guy was going the opposite was than she was and turned into her lane. So my question is why is she being charged? She tried to stop regardless if she was speeding or not it was still the guys responsibility to judge if he had to the time to turn or not

At 55 mph how fast was the kid suppose to stop? He had the right away. It was a male driver in the Neon. I feel the driver making the left should of been charged. But, it seems just easier to charge the teen. If I were him I'd fight the charge.

so car and driver test showed that a neon can go from 70mph to full stop in 178 feet. It took this neon 267j feet to stop.. impacting another car in the process?? that must have been one hell of a rubber band.. those squirrels were winding up!

Do antilock vs non-antilock brakes make any difference in the equation? Just curious.

Also, I believe the officer included the distance the car was driven off the road in the 174 feet, as opposed to the actual inital point it came to rest. Not sure.
