RAYBURN — A man was seriously injured in Monday morning when he crashed his SUV over an embankment along Clearfield Pike.

Rayburn Fire Chief Henry Bellas said the man, whose name was not released, was driving a Chevy Blazer east near Valley View Drive around 10:20 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle along a bend at the crest of a hill.

“It looks like he lost (traction) up at the top of the hill and it slid about 200 or 250 feet down into a guardrail,” said Bellas.

The SUV then traveled over the guardrail, buckling a road sign before coming to rest in a creek alongside the road.

Rayburn firefighters said the driver was conscious but incoherent when they arrived at the scene and he was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Kittanning Hose Co. 6 and Kittanning Township Fire Department assisted at the scene.
