PSP : Christmas Day crash injures two


A Christmas Day crash in Harrisburg left a Dillsburg man critically injured, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

A Honda motorcycle driven by Tyshawn T. Watkins, 24, collided with a Jeep Wrangler driven by Robert M. Fleagle, 51, Newport, on Front Street at 5:44 a.m. Christmas Day, police said

Watkins was traveling the wrong way in the 2800 block of Front Street at the time, according to police. Front Street is one way going south in that area.

Fleagle’s Jeep was southbound in the left lane when the northbound motorcycle hit its front passenger side. Watkins, who was wearing a helmet, landed on the grass shoulder of the road. The cycle came to rest on Front Street’s west side, heavily damaged. The Jeep came to rest blocking Broad Street’s right lane, with disabling damage to its passenger front side from the force of the impact.

Community Life Team Emergency Medical Services transported Watkins to Holy Spirit Hospital, where he was reportedly in critically condition yesterday. Fleagle was taken to UMPC Harrisburg Hospital for evaluation. Harrisburg Police and Fire and Leahy’s Towing assisted state troopers at the scene.
