— WEST MILTON — A teenager from Milton was seriously injured early Saturday morning when his car veered off Crossroads Drive and overturned.

Devin M. Brown. 18, was transported to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville where he was reported in serious condition this morning.

State police at Milton said Brown was thrown from his Hyundai Tiburon as it overturned at 12:49 a.m. Saturday.

Police said Brown was driving west on Crossroads Drive when he lost control of the car on a curve. The vehicle went off the road and into a grassy field where it struck a traffic sign. After hitting the sign, the vehicle continued and struck a second traffic sign, then went up a slight embankment where it overturned, landing on its roof.

Police said speed was a factor in the crash and they are investigating whether or not Brown had consumed alcohol prior to the crash, according to police reports.
