    Crash victims ID'd

    SHAMOKIN TOWNSHIP - State police at Stonington have released the identities of two people involved in an accident Friday afternoon on Jasmine Road near Route 61.

    Police said Steven B. Willard, 56, of Lewisburg, was driving a 1997 Buick LeSabre north on Route 61 at 1 p.m. in the left lane and attempted to merge, but was unable to do so and sped up to pass the other motorist. He was able to make the pass, but then attempted to turn onto Jasmine Road, a slight right off of Route 61. His car ascended a slight dirt incline, causing him to lose control, and the vehicle went another approximately 100 feet before striking an embankment with its driver's side front fender. The car rolled onto its driver's side and slid approximately 15 feet before coming to rest on its roof.

    Willard escaped injury, but a passenger, Brian P. Long, 40, of Northumberland, was transported by Elysburg Ambulance to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. He was listed Saturday in serious condition, according to a nursing supervisor. Both men were wearing seat belts, police said.

    The car was towed from the scene by W&L Subaru.

    Willard was cited by Trooper James Yankovich for failing to drive in a single lane.

    Also assisting at the accident were Trooper Todd Leiby, AREA Ambulance and Stonington Fire Company.
