---- — A 21-year-old Sandy Lake man was killed early Saturday when he lost control of his car and rolled it several times on Hadley Road, Perry Township.

Pennsylvania State Police said Cody M. Lawrence, 4974 Sandy Lake-Greenville Road, was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:40 a.m. Mercer County Deputy Coroner Robert L. Snyder said Lawrence died of head injuries.

Police said Lawrence was driving a 1999 Honda Accord and was traveling east on Hadley Road when it went off the south berm, running up onto an embankment, and rolling multiple times, crashing through brush and trees. It came to rest just west of Pierson Road in a yard along the north side of state Route 358.

Police said Lawrence was not wearing a seatbelt and remained inside the car.
