A small plane crashed on top of a mountain in Jackson Township, Columbia County. The crash occurred about 9 p.m. last night (Sunday). Jackson Township is on the border of Columbia and Sullivan Counties. The nearest town is Benton, PA.
The pilot was 22-year-old James Caswell of Lake Ariel, PA. Fortunately, Caswell was rescued. He maintained contact with rescue officials via his cell phone. The area of the crash is very remote which was a challenge for rescuers. The plane crashed on top of a mountain, which was described as “all boulders and laurel” by Benton Fire Chief, Ron Robbins.
Geisinger Medical Center‘s Life Flight helicopter found the crash site and was able to help rescue workers, coming a mile and a half up from the bottom of the mountain, find the plane.
Caswell sustained injuries. The crash is under investigation.
This problem appears to be on the way to becoming an epidemic….
Some clown from Dauphin County was driving his ATV on the road while in the Weiser State Forest. The forest ranger, Nicola Zulli, tried to stop this bozo from driving his ATV on the road. His response was to accelerate and hit the ranger, breaking her leg. Then our hero leaves the scene of the accident with the ranger lying in the road with a broken leg. WTH is wrong with people?????????????????
Police found Mr. Michael Matter, III at a Jackson Twp. residence and took him into custody. This smacked ass is in the Dauphin County jail because he could not post the necessary $250,000 bail. He confessed to hitting Ranger Zulli and is charged with a laundry list of crimes.
