  • Michael E. Kennedy, 49, of Elliottsburg, was taken to Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital for suspected serious injuries after a crash at 8:32 p.m. Feb. 12 in Tyrone Township.

The car hit an embankment and rolled over, hitting a mailbox, a chicken and a bush before coming to rest after hitting the chimney of a house in the 700 block of Sheaffers Valley Road.
