PSP New Castle tells KDSTV that 63 year old Robert W. McCready of New Galilee crashed his ATV into a 2011 Jeep Liberty on Route 168 around 8 o’clock this morning. The accident happened at the intersection of Beaver Dam Road and Route 168. McCready was thrown from his 1997 Honda ATV and was unconscious at the scene. He was transported by Northwestern Ambulance to Heritage Valley Hospital in Beaver with serious injuries. The driver of the Jeep, 43 year old Doris Dinger of New Galilee, was not injured.
The driver of another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction took evasive action by going of the road and eventually striking a house. The driver of that mini-van also wasn’t injured and but the house had minor damage. Heavy fog was in the area at the time of the accident and still could be seen after videographer Joe Sobczak arrived on the scene.
