A Northumberland County man died Saturday following a head-on crash on the Gordon Nagle Trail outside Pottsville.

According to State Police in Schuylkill Haven, the crash happened along the Gordon Nagle, at the intersection with SPCA Rd.

They say a Kia Sorento driven by a 32-year-old man from Coal Township was headed south on the Gordon Nagle (Route 901). At that intersection, the driver failed to negotiate a right turn in the road and crossed into the northbound lane of the road.

Police say the Kia crashed head-on into a Ford F-150 driven by a man from Pitman. He had a female passenger at the time of the crash.
