Man, 20, dies in 2-vehicle crash

A 20-year-old Selinsgrove man died in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday.

The crash occurred at 7:56 a.m. in Penn Township, according to state police at Selinsgrove.

Anthony D. Kratzer, who died in the crash, was driving a Ford Focus on Perkinson Road, which is a two-lane roadway with no line markers, according to police. He was traveling around a curve at the time of the crash and Felicia Marie Kaufman, 31, of Selinsgrove, was driving a Nissan Rogue in the opposing lane.

Kratzer was not traveling at a safe speed, according to police, and his vehicle was “partially in the oncoming lane.” The front driver side bumper of the Ford Focus and the front driver side bumper and corner panel of the Nissan Rogue hit.

Kratzer, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, was pronounced dead at the scene. Kaufman was taken by Selinsgrove EMS to Geisinger Medical Center for suspected serious injuries.
