ATLAS — A 72-year-old Elysburg man suffered serious injuries Wednesday morning when a truck he was driving veered off Route 61 and crashed head-on into the basement of a garage, causing extensive damage.

Mount Carmel Township Patrolman Kelly Campbell, who investigated the 8:31 a.m. crash with Chief of Police Brian Hollenbush, reported Lee Mowery was driving a red Chevrolet Silverado 4X4 truck north toward Strong when his vehicle crossed over two or three lanes of the highway onto the berm before hitting a dumpster and the corner of a small garage near the intersection with Mulberry Street.
