Hummels Wharf, Pa. – Three men are recovering at Geisinger Medical Center after being involved in a one-vehicle accident Saturday on Route 11 in Snyder County, in which entrapment was reported.

Alcohol is suspected to have played a role in the crash, according to Pennsylvania State Police at Selinsgrove.
