Dushore Man Dies in Route 220 Crash

By Rocket Staff

A Dushore man was killed on Monday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash that occurred in Sullivan County.

Douglas C. Houck, 67, Dushore, died as a result of injuries he sustained in the crash along Route 220 in Cherry Township, just south of the intersection with Old Bernice Road.

According to state police at Laporte, Houck was northbound in his 2002 Dodge Dakota pickup truck and, for unknown reasons, traveled off the eastern berm across a driveway. The vehicle continued northeast across a grassy area and struck a small wooden lawn structure, then down over a wooded embankment, striking multiple trees.

The truck came to a final rest after striking a utility pole support wire.

Police are still investigating the crash.
