The Blotter

State police investigated a two-vehicle accident early last week in Warriors Mark Township that sent a Tyrone woman to the hospital.
The crash happened on Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. on State Route 550 in the area of Ridge Road when 63-year-old Donald Bard of McConnellsburg was operating a 1992 Chevrolet Silverado with a Great Plains no-till drill attached to it.
Bard was southbound while a vehicle operated by 20-year-old Erika Latchford was northbound, according to Huntingdon-based state police. The trailer portion of Bard’s vehicle crossed the center double line and hit Latchford’s vehicle as it passed. Both drivers were able to stop after the crash and pull to the side of the road.
Latchford was wearing a seat belt and was injured in the accident. She was transported to Tyrone Hospital by AMED. Police said Bard and a passenger in his vehicle, 70-year-old Gerald Bard of Warfordsburg, were both wearing seat belts. Bard was to be cited for failure to yield half of the highway.
Warriors Mark-Franklin Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Two Bellwood women were involved in a two-vehicle accident on old Route 220, approximately 1/2 mile north of State Route 764 in Antis Township on Oct. 6.
The accident happened at 3:20 p.m. when a vehicle operated by 18-year-old Danielle Blattenberger was traveling behind a pick-up truck operated by 46-year-old Debra Ann Loucks.
The pick-up truck was stopped for a school bus that was discharging children. Police said Blattenberger did not notice this and her vehicle hit the truck from behind.
Blattenberger was not wearing a seat belt and suffered minor injuries. Loucks was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt. Both vehicles had severe damage.

A Tyrone driver escaped injury in a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 99 that happened last Friday, shortly after 5 p.m.
Police said both vehicles were on the highway southbound near mile marker 46, when 35-year-old Tiffany J. Treese of Hollidaysburg attempted to pass a vehicle driven by 21-year-old Delores E. Corbin.
Corbin lost control of her vehicle and hit Treese’s vehicle. After the initial impact, Corbin’s vehicle spun out and came to rest in the center median. Treese’s vehicle traveled off the road to the right and struck the west guiderail barrier. Her vehicle flipped over the barrier and rolled over down a steep embankment.
Corbin was wearing her seat belt and was not injured. Treese was also wearing a seat belt and suffered moderate injuries. Authorities said Corbin was to be cited for failure to operate her vehicle within a single lane of traffic.
Both southbound lanes of I-99 were closed for approximately two hours, at various times, until both vehicles could be removed from the scene. The press release from Hollidaysburg-based State Police did not indicate the agencies that assisted on the scene.
