Two injured in Somerset County crash
Two people were badly injured in a vehicle crash in Somerset County early Sunday morning.
Driver Manson R. Ansell, 22, of Rockwood and passenger Jennifer R. Jury, 26, of Somerset both sustained severe injuries, according to state police at Somerset.
At about 1:20 a.m. the Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by Ansell was traveling south on Route 281 in Milford Township at a high rate of speed when Ansell failed to negotiate a bend, police said. He then corrected the steering wheel and lost control of the vehicle.
The truck crossed the oncoming lane of traffic and hit an embankment. It then continued back across the roadway and rolled over. Both Ansell and Jury were ejected from the vehicle, which came to rest in a cornfield and caught fire.
Police are continuing the investigation and have asked witnesses to call 814-445-4104 with any information.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
