Smethport Man Killed in Route 6 Crash

A 49-year-old Smethport man is dead following a one-vehicle crash late last night on Route 6.

Police say an SUV driven by James Russell was just east of Pierce Brook Road at about 11:45 p.m. when it traveled onto the north berm and hit a tree in an embankment. The vehicle then rolled over a number of times while crossing both lanes of the road.

Russell was pronounced dead at the scene by McKean County Coroner Mike Cahill.
