GREEN TOWNSHIP — State police reported Caitlyn Pancoast, of Blairsville, was injured about 1 p.m. Saturday when the car she was driving hit a guardrail along Route 286 then collided with an oncoming coal truck near Musser Street.

Pancoast was treated at the Indiana Regional Medical Center and was discharged in good condition, a nursing supervisor said.

Troopers at Indiana said Pancoast was trapped in her car for a time, was extricated by the Commodore fire department, and was treated at the scene by Citizens’ Ambulance Service paramedics.

The driver of the coal truck, Robert Lydic, of Rochester Mills, was not reported to be injured.
