MORRIS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A teenager was injured Saturday afternoon after his car “exploded” in a crash in Washington County.
The Observer-Reporter says a 16-year-old boy from Greene County was driving south on Route 18 in Morris Township when he went off the road and crashed into a tree.
Morris Fire Chief Dave Dietrich told the Observer-Reporter that the boy’s car “exploded into pieces with the motor and transmission tearing out of the car.”
Passersby helped the boy get out of the vehicle and he was conscious when firefighters arrived. He was taken to a Pittsburgh-area hospital for treatment.
Speed is believed to have been a factor in the crash.
State police are investigating.
