No injuries were reported in a one-vehicle accident Wednesday on Quehanna Highway in Karthaus Township when Devon Tarner of Frenchville was traveling south.
His vehicle began to slide on the wet roadway, traveled onto the west berm, struck a guide rail and re-entered the roadway, where it crossed both lanes. It slid south for approximately 100 feet, traveled onto the east berm and struck a tree head-on.
Tarner and his passenger, Katie Lenhart of Frenchville, were wearing seat belts.
The investigation continues after a township resident reported a Texas man opened a checking account at J.P. Morgan Bank using the resident's name, Social Security number and date of birth.
