Fire and ambulance personnel from Tunkhannock, Springville, and Factoryville responded to a vehicular accident on Route 29 in Lemon Township, Wyoming County, near the Susquehanna County line around 6 pm Wednesday evening.

Additional companies were placed on stand-by as crews on the scene dealt with heavy entrapment and an apparent fatality. That stretch of highway was closed for a number of hours while Pennsylvania State Police conducted a reconstruction of the accident.

According to public postings on Facebook, Francis Marshall of Springville and a young son were among the injured. Marshall’s condition is regarded by family members as serious, while the injuries to the nephew were regarded as minor.

On WNEP 16’s noon report, Chad Yakoski of Mehoopany was named as the fatality.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
