Horrific 1-car accident kills New Oxford man
BY ALEX HAYES - Times staff writer
A New Oxford man is dead after a horrific accident in Mount Plesant Township that tore his car into three pieces.
Cpl. James R. Graham of the Pennsylvania State Police said Jason John Carbaugh, 22, of 4493 York Road was driving south on Granite Station Road at "an extremely high rate of speed" at 1:40 p.m. when he lost control on a right curve near Red Bird Lane.
The vehicle, which police did not identify, drifted from the southbound lane into the northbound lane then onto the east berm.
Carbaugh managed to regain control but over-corrected the vehicle and traveled southwest across the highway into a yard.
The vehicle then struck a road sign, a wood fence and a utility pole.
It then broke into three pieces, with the front and rear sections seperating.
The rear of the vehicle then went onto the highway.
Carbaugh, who was not wearing his seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene by Adams County Coroner Pat Felix.
Police were assisted by Bonneauville Fire Company and Medic 28.
Some residents lost electricity while Met-Ed replaced the broken utility pole.
Prayers go out to his family, may he RIP.

May he R.I.P....and hopefully someone on this site can learn something from this. our cars are not safe for high speeds anyway,unless you modify suspension components; so if you wanna go fast out of the box,and have some steel around you, dont buy a crx.... everytime I see something like this, it makes me want to sell my car...

How much for the blades?
I think Pringles' initial intention was to make tennis *****. But on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. But Pringles is a laid-back company. They said "expletive it. Cut 'em up."
I really hope this is a wakeup call to those who think not wearing seatbelts and not driving within the speed limit is "cool". Even though the seatbelt wouldn't have done jack in this case, they said he was travelling at an "extremely high rate of speed" here, I'd guess well over 100mph. Keep it at the track if you want to go fast people. May he RIP.
Edit: My first sentence made no sense .

RIP means rest in pieces right? Because stupidity will do that to you. I'm guessing that's not an open casket, although morticians can do some beautiful things.
I hate to be so callous about the whole ordeal, and I do feel deeply for his family and his friends. I don't however have any sympathy for him. He was driving too fast, for whatever reason, and did something incredibly stupid - got himself dead. I lost a friend to heroin recently, and this is just another side of the same coin. Stupid choices lead to stupid conclusions.

It says he lost control in the report, and regained it only to overcorrect. Read before you post.
