truck overturned

One person was seriously injured Friday when a car collided with a dump truck on Route 422 in Armstrong Township around 1:40 p.m.

State police at Indiana reported that a 2008 Chevrolet HHR driven by Dominic J. Coleman, 18, of Shelocta, was traveling north from the parking lot of Dollar General when his vehicle pulled into the path of a 1988 International operated by Mark A. Lapp, 54, of Coral.

The truck, which was hauling a load of hot asphalt, flipped onto its roof and brought down power lines. Police said Lapp was taken to Forbes Hospital in Monroeville with suspected serious injuries, but Coleman was not injured. Both drivers were wearing seat belts, police said.

The Elderton fire department was assisted by Citizens’ Ambulance Service.
