The Republican Herald is reporting that three people were taken to a Pottsville hospital after two vehicles collided yesterday afternoon on the Pottsy Hill in Mahanoy Township. Township police Chief Brandon Alexander said the crash occurred about 1:30 p.m. at a sharp curve about a half-mile south of Mahanoy City. He said Joseph S. Beury, Mahanoy City, was driving a car north when he entered the curve, crossed over the center line of the road and collided with a southbound Jeep driven by George A. Stephenson, Pottsville.
After impact, Stephenson’s vehicle went off the road, while Beury’s car continued several hundred feet north, coming to a stop in the northbound lane. Beury, Stephenson and a passenger in the Jeep, Edmund Jones, also of Pottsville, were all taken to Schuylkill Medical Center-East Norwegian Street by Mahanoy City EMS. Alexander said Beury suffered rib injuries, while both Stephenson and Jones were transported for evaluation.
