April 03, 2008

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Fayetteville, Pa., man was flown to York (Pa.) Hospital on Wednesday afternoon after a single-vehicle accident in which he was thrown from a car when it struck a large boulder.

Reginald O. Johnson, 39, was thrown through the rear window of a Pontiac Trans Am in the 11:53 a.m. crash at the entrance of L/B Water Service, at 427 Skelly Road in Guilford Township, Pennsylvania State Police said. Johnson was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

A hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday afternoon that no information was being released about Johnson.

Police said Johnson was driving east when he crested a hill and went off the south side of the road, hitting a landscaped bed with a wooden pylon border. The car became airborne and rolled over twice before striking the boulder, which appeared to have been shoved a few feet by the impact.

The car landed on its roof and the driver's door was caved in.
