A Tamaqua woman avoided serious injuries Thursday morning when her car struck a parked truck on Pine Street. Patricia Lucyk, of Barnesville, was driving in a red Nissan when she was distracted by a bang from the rear area of the car. By the time she brought her attention back to the front of the car she was unable to avoid striking the rear of a parked truck, owned by Allentown Beverage. The car suffered severe front end damage and was towed from the scene. The truck sustained minor damage.
