Center Township

One person was hurt in a rear-end collision at 1:47 p.m. Tuesday on Route 119.

State police at Indiana said a southbound truck towing a house on Route 119 broke down and blocked the right travel lane. A white truck tractor towing a trailer traveling in the right lane merged into the left lane and cut off a car driven by Wayne Sias, 51, of Black Lick.

Police said Sias braked to avoid a collision with the truck tractor, and the Sias car was hit from behind by a car driven by Ronda Gearhart, 40, of Lucernemines.

Gearhart was injured and taken by Citizens’ Ambulance Service to Indiana Regional Medical Center. A hospital spokeswoman said Gearhart was treated and released.

The driver of the truck tractor did not stop and left the scene of the crash, according to police.
