A one-vehicle crash on Wopsononock Road just beyond the Blair County line in Cambria County on Sunday evening killed an approximately 46-year old man, according to state police.
The driver - whose name police did not release, but whose driver's license listed a Cresson address - was the only occupant of the vehicle, which was wedged against a tree, upside down, about 20 feet off the asphalt, police said.
Based on the absence of skid marks and the presence of "yaw" marks, the driver may have swerved without braking for an animal, police said.

Aman with a Cresson address was killed in a one-vehicle accident on Wopsononock Road, just inside the Cambria County line, on Sunday evening. State police confirmed the fatality but did not release the man’s identity pending notification of next of kin.
The car was northbound and went off the right side of the road without veering into the opposite lane, police said.
The accident was about 200 yards north - and on the other side of the road from - a large white cross and a basket for flowers affixed to a tree, apparently in memory of an earlier crash victim.
Initial reports indicated the crash was in Logan Township, Blair County.
Emergency vehicles closed Wopsononock Road on the Blair County side of the crash scene at Richland Road and at Route 53 near Dean.
