A teenaged girl was hurt during a single vehicle accident Friday afternoon in Adams County. The Sheriff’s Department said Monday, 17-year old Amanda Simmons, who was one of two passengers in the vehicle, was flown by helicopter to an area hospital following the crash that took place just before 4-p.m. Friday, on Kentucky Avenue in Adams County.

Officials say a 2005 Saturn Vue driven by 19-year old Kaitlyn DeYoung, of Corning, was traveling over a hill north of Corning, when the vehicle went out of control and entered a ditch before hitting some trees. The accident remains under investigation.
