• Driver, 2 dogs rescued after crash into Collier Township creek


    COLLIER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Snow-covered roads may be to blame for a crash in Collier Township Monday night.

    Officials said a driver lost control of his sport utility vehicle and ended up overturned in a creek off of KP Hollow Road.

    Police said the driver slid off the roadway, crashed through a guiderail and landed in the water.

    Nicole Magdich said she lives just feet away from the scene and was watching television with her sons when she heard the crash.

    "It was just a loud bang. We know the sound of when somebody hits that guiderail," Magdich said.

    The family said crashes like this one happen often.

    "The first thing I said is, 'again?' It's not the first time. It's been a couple of times that people have ended up in this creek here," Noah Magdich said.

    Emergency crews said the driver crawled through the front windshield and was not seriously hurt.

    Two dogs inside of the car were also saved.

    Nicole Magdich said she would like to see more lighting in the area and a concrete barrier to prevent future accidents.
