Troopers Cite Harleysville Woman Following Crash

PERKIOMEN PA – A 40-year-old Harleysville woman was cited for failure to obey traffic control signals, according to a public information report issued Monday (Aug. 16, 2021) by Pennsylvania State Police at the Troop K Barracks, following their investigation of a two-vehicle crash. She also incurred possible injuries during the incident and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, troopers said.

The accident occurred Aug. 12 (Thursday) at 12:35 p.m. on Gravel Pike at its intersection with Bridge Street in Perkiomen Township, they reported. The Harleysville resident was driving a 2006 Toyota Camry (at top) south on Gravel Pike, while the second driver, a 19-year-old Collegeville woman, was in a 2010 Hyundai Elantra (below) headed west on Graterford Road toward Bridge Street.

Troopers allege the Harleysville driver in the Toyota “failed to stop at the steady red signal and proceeded into the intersection,” just as the Collegeville driver entered it. As her Hyundai was hit it “turned around from the impact,” and ended up “facing eastbound on Bridge Street,” they added. The Toyota “went straight from the impact, off onto the right hand shoulder and partially into the lane of travel,” they added.

The Collegeville woman was unhurt. The Harleysville woman “received unknown injuries in the crash as a result of the impact,” troopers noted, and was taken by Trappe emergency medical services personnel to Phoenixville Hospital.
