Local News

A 17-year-old boy died after his pickup truck left the roadway in Crawford County on Thursday morning.

The accident happened around 11 a.m. on Guys Mills Road near Carpenter Road, west of Townville.

The victim was identified as Alton R. Danforth. 

“First of all, it’s a rather treacherous curve to begin with,” said Kevin Hill of the Randolph Fire Department. “It’s very deceiving. If you come around too fast you can go right off the edge pretty quickly and that’s basically what has happened.” 

Two passengers in the vehicle were treated at the scene and released.
