At approximately 6am Friday August 26th, Butler Township Police received a call for a motor vehicle accident along Police Grove Road in Butler Township.
The accident was discovered by an individual walking their dog in the rural area. It is unknown at what time the accident occurred.
The driver identified as Gary Michael Mcguire Jr, 22 of Drums, was pronounced dead at the scene after being ejected from the vehicle.
Butler Township Police have reconstructed the accident as follows:
The Vehicle was traveling south on Police Grove Road at a high rate of speed operated
by Mcguire. The vehicle exited the roadway via the western berm. Once off the
western berm the vehicle’s right rear tire struck a large log. This action deflated the rear
tire. The vehicle re entered the Police Grove Road and crossed the center lane
entering the northbound lane and exited the roadway via the eastern berm. The vehicle
struck an embankment which caused the vehicle to roll over several times ejecting the
driver. The vehicle came to a point of uncontrolled rest on it’s roof off the eastern berm
of Police Grove Road.
Valley Regional Fire and Freeland Fire responded to the scene of the accident early this morning.
