Jasmine Cardona, 16, dead, three injured in single-vehicle crash on South Main Road in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania
One person has died after a crash late Saturday night in Luzerne County.
The crash occurred along South Main Road in the Lee Park section of Hanover Township, near Wilkes-Barre. According to police, a car with four passengers was traveling southbound when it crossed over into the northbound lane and struck a utility pole.
All four passengers were taken to a local hospital via ambulance.
While police offered no updates on the investigation of a crash that killed 16-year-old Jasmine Cardona, school resumed as normal in the halls of Wyoming Valley West High School, where she was a member of the junior class.
The vehicle involved in the crash that killed a Wyoming Valley West student last weekend was driven by a 17-year-old girl without a valid license, authorities report.
The driver was speeding, inattentive, and not licensed, according to police Chief Albert Walker. She was charged Wednesday through juvenile court with accidents involving death or personal injury, police said.
