CORSICA, Pa. (EYT) – A 35-year-old Brookville man was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital following a crash in Corsica yesterday.

State police say the accident happened around 12:40 a.m. Sunday when 35-year-old Jason P. Beers lost control of his vehicle while attempting to negotiate a turn on State Route 322.

Beers’ 1999 Ford F-150 traveled off the north berm and struck a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser parked along the roadway, pushing it into a parked 2012 Chrysler 200. The impact then pushed the Chrysler 200 into a tree and a third parked vehicle — a 2003 GMC Envoy.

A fourth parked vehicle — a 2007 Dodge Caliber — sustained window damage from flying debris.

Beers’ vehicle came to a rest facing north in the eastbound travel lane of State Route 322.

He was flown to UPMC Presbyterian for treatment of moderate injuries.

According to police, he was not wearing his seat belt.

Police say Beers was traveling at a high rate of speed during the crash.

Police believe alcohol was a contributing factor.

Corsica VFD and Jefferson County EMS assisted at the scene.
