LAMAR TOWNSHIP, CLINTON COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A Thursday night crash in Clinton County has left one dead and sent another to the hospital.
According to state police, a 20-year-old and his 21-year-old passenger were driving north on Nittany Valley Drive around 21:50 p.m.

State police said neither person was wearing a seat belt.
The deceased driver was identified as 20-year-old Jayden Eisenhower. His passenger has been identified as 21-year-old Gavin Rafter.
