One dead in Barree Road crash, police say

One person died in a fatal crash on Barree Road in Porter Township, according to state police at Huntingdon.

David Drumheller, 26, of Petersburg was pronounced dead at the scene, a release said. The crash occurred at about 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Police said Drumheller was driving southbound on Barree Road, just passing Shelton Avenue, when his Chevrolet Sentra crossed the double yellow painted divider into the northbound lane. A Chevrolet Silverado driven by Timothy Yeager, of Patton in Altoona, was traveling northbound.

Yeager attempted to avoid a crash, according to police, by swerving right but the vehicles crashed head on.

Both vehicles sustained heavy front end damage, but Yeager was able to exit his vehicle and was later taken to UPMC Altoona. Drumheller did not wear a seatbelt in the crash, according to police.
