News: Driver cited after high-speed wreck on PA Turnpike in Big Beaver

BEAVER COUNTY, PA — A 63-year-old man was cited late Sunday after a single-vehicle crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Big Beaver, reports Beaver County Radio.

Pennsylvania State Police responded to the scene at mile marker 13.1, near Buttermilk Falls Natural Area, at around 11:30 p.m.

Officials learned the man was driving a 2015 Dodge Charger eastbound in the right lane at a high rate of speed when he lost control. Shortly after, the vehicle veered past the left lane and hit the center concrete barrier. The impact of that crash sent the car spinning counter-clockwise until it collided with the barrier again.

Troopers arrived to find the Dodge facing south and at rest between the left and right lanes.

The driver was not hurt in the crash, but State Police confirmed he was cited for driving at “an unsafe speed.”
