Fatal crash near Brodheadsville


The coroner has identified the victim of an accident Friday morning in Monroe County.

The crash happened around 8 a.m. at Route 715 and Effort-Neola Road, near Brodheadsville, in Chestnuthill Township.

Michal Kobylinski, the driver of the car, died at the scene, according to Bob Allen, Monroe County's coroner.


Kobylinski, 20, of Stroudsburg, was driving north on Route 715 when he went into the southbound lane, over-corrected, went up an embankment and wrapped the car around a tree, Allen said.

The death was ruled an accident.

Kobylinski's front seat passenger was his cousin, 18-year-old Chris Szymanski, who was injured and taken to the hospital, but officials had no information about his condition.

State police in Fern Ridge are handling the investigation.
