Lower Burrell Patrolman Steve Aulerich discusses a single-vehicle crash that happened Saturday afternoon, Oct. 21, 2017, on Dutchman Run Road involving nine teenagers.

Lower Burrell police continue to investigate a SUV rollover last month involving nine youth.

The Oct. 21 single vehicle accident happened at about 1:40 p.m. along Dutchman Run Road. Five occupants were ejected and hospitalized.

Three of the nine who were in the Ford Explorer were girls and the rest were boys, and all ranged in age from 14 to 17.

Lower Burrell Patrolman Steve Aulerich said he is awaiting a state police accident reconstruction report.

After that is done police and an assistant district attorney will review the case, said Chief Tim Weitzel.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
