Two related men died in a one-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon in Jay Township, Elk County. State police say a Dodge Ram driven by 69year old Luther Wolff of St.Marys went off the Bennett’s Valley Highway near Micale Road and into the gravel parking lot at Rose’s Hilltop Diner. The3 truck went out of control, struck an embankment on the right side of the road and rolled over several times. The driver and 53 year old Stephen Wolff of Byrnedale were pronounced dead at the scene.

A Port Allegany woman was flown to Hamot Medical Center in Erie for treatment of injuries she suffered Wednesday afternoon in an accident on Route 6 in Roulette Township. According to state police, Emily Turner was going west east of the Burtville Road when her Mercury Mountaineer went onto the westbound shoulder, hit a boulder and rotated about 180 degrees before stopping.

Dustin Perry, 31 of Gillett PA has been arrested for harassment by state police at Mansfield. Troopers say Joan Perry of Wellsboro told them her estranged husband was riding his motorcycle past her house at 136 A Street in Duncan Township last Friday afternoon and revved the engine with the intent to annoy and harass. Charges have been filed in district court.

The theft of a motor vehicle owned by PennDot is being investigated by troopers at the Mansfield barracks. A 1988 Ford L8000 flatbed truck was taken from Locey Creek Road at French Hill Road between 3:00 pm Tuesday and 1:00 pm Wednesday and was driven to Tubbs Road in Farmington Townsihp where it was driven into a dirt pil off the eastern edge of the road and abandoned. Anyone with information is asked to call the barracks at 570.662.2151.
