Two Deaths on Susquehanna County Roads Three Days Apart
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating two fatal crashes in Susquehanna County over the past several days.
On Friday, May 13, 31-year-old Zachary Fry of Thornhurst, Pennsylvania was killed when, Pennsylvania State Police say, he sped through an intersection at State Route 547 and State Route 492 in Jackson Township without stopping at a posted stop sign.
Troopers say the car became airborne, landed back on Route 547 and veered right off the road, hitting a tree before the Hyundai Accent burst into flames. Fry was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say the crash happened at around 8:43 p.m.
In the second incident, Troopers say shortly before 8:30 Monday morning, May 16, 26-year-old Justin Moon of Sugar Run was killed after he lost control of his motorcycle on a right-hand, downhill curve while traveling west on State Route 706 in Rush Township.
Moon applied the brake and the 2006 Yamaha star slid on its side into the oncoming lane and was hit by a Freightliner dump truck driven by a 62-year-old man from Rome, Pennsylvania.
Moon was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the dump truck was not hurt.
