Crash Closes Route 54 Early Saturday in Rush Township


A crash closed Route 54 for several hours early Saturday.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police at Frackville, the crash occurred in the Pine Creek Drive section of Route 54 in Rush Township around 5:50am.

Troopers say the crash occurred as Michael Kranch, 39, of Mahanoy City was traveling east on Route 54 and lost control of his vehicle on the snow covered roadway.  Kranch's Chevrolet Silverado left the highway and struck a utility pole.

Kranch was not injured in the crash but his vehicle required towing from the scene.

Traffic in the area of the crash was detoured for several hours due to low hanging wires and also to allow crews to replace the pole.
