Police: Driver seen taking ‘selfie’ before crash

BIGLERVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) – Police say a driver was seen taking a selfie before he crashed on Route 30 in Adams County.

Witnesses reported that 34-year-old Alexander Cintron was using a cellphone to take a photo of himself and became distracted. He crashed around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Franklin Township, state police in Gettysburg said.

Cintron was driving a 2014 Dodge Dart that traveled into the oncoming lane, went into a grassy area, then went airborne before striking a concrete slab and a metal sign for a veterinary office.

The collision with the concrete slab dislodged the car’s engine and front wheels. The car came to rest in the veterinary office parking lot.

Cintron was flown to York Hospital for moderate injuries.

Police said the investigation is still ongoing to determine if he was using his cell phone at the time of the crash. No charges have been filed so far.
