No Injuries In Water Truck/Car Crash On Route 59 Wednesday

No one was injured in a crash with a car and a water truck Wednesday at 10:54 am on Route 59 in Lafayette Township.

Michael J. Griffin, 59, of Lewis Run, PA, was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Astro Van east on Route 59.

Herman L. Burrows, 45, of Eldred, PA, was driving a 2001 Mack EZ-427 truck east following the Astro Van.

As Burrows started to pass Griffin in a legal passing zone, Griffin attempted to make a left turn into a driveway. The right front of the truck impacted with the left front of the van.

After the initial impact, the truck traveled off the left side of the road and impacted a tree head on.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts and were not injured.

Griffin was charged with not using his turn signal. Lafayette Township Fire Department assisted troopers at the accident scene.
