According to reports from the Sunbury Daily Item by Evamarie Socha, two people were taken to Geisinger Medical Center with injuries following a two-vehicle collision Sunday afternoon, August 26, 2012, in Sunbury that upended one vehicle, which then landed on its roof.
Sunbury Police Officer Corey Zerbe said at about 5:16 p.m., Donna Kemberling, 46 of Danville, and a 17-year-old female passenger were traveling northbound in the 400 block of Fairmount Avenue in a Nissan Rogue when Kemberling pulled into the intersection with Reagan Street.
There, her vehicle collided with a Ford Taurus, driven by Josh Herrold, 21 of Sunbury, who was eastbound on Reagan.
The collision spun around Kemberling’s vehicle, which then rolled over and came to rest on its roof near the intersection.
Herrold was not injured, Zerbe said, but Kemberling and her teen passenger were taken to Geisinger for treatment after first responders extracted the pair from their vehicle.
Sunbury Fire Police closed Reagan Street to traffic between Catawissa Avenue and North 11th Street while firemen and police tended to the scene. Responding with the fire and city police were the Pennsylvania State Police, Area Ambulance, Americus Hose Co., Friendship Hose Co. and Sunbury Hose Co. No. 1.
Firefighters cleaned up some fuels at the scene, but there was no hazardous-materials situation, said Jason Lehman, battalion chief of Sunbury Hose Co. who lead the firefighters’ response.
An investigation into the cause of the accident will continue.
