Police identify people in Terry Township crash
State police have released the names of the people who were involved in Wednesday's one-vehicle accident on state Route 187 in Terry Township, which resulted in one person being flown by medical helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.
At approximately 3:35 p.m. Wednesday, 27-year-old Cory Briggs of Gillett was driving the vehicle, a 1999 Ford Escort, south on Route 187 when it failed to negotiate a slight right-hand curve, police said.
The car traveled off the east side of the roadway and struck several trees, and then traveled down an embankment and overturned before coming to rest on its driver side, police said.
Briggs and his passenger, 21-year-old Christina Paris of Camptown, both fled the scene and received a ride to a residence in Camptown from a passerby, police aid.
A 911 call was placed from the Camptown residence approximately one hour after the crash, due to Briggs' injuries, police said.
Briggs was subsequently flown by medical helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, police said.
Paris was found hiding inside the residence by state police, and she provide false information regarding her identity, police said.
Paris had active warrants for her arrest and that is why she and Briggs fled the scene, state police at Towanda said.
Paris suffered a moderate injury and was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Towanda, where she was treated and released and then taken to the Bradford County Correctional Facility, police said.
As of Thursday night, Briggs had been discharged from Robert Packer Hospital, a spokesperson for the hospital said.
