Clyde and Kacmarcik were injured and taken to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township, for evaluation, troopers said. No one else was reported injured.
Damages were disabling to the Honda, Buick and Nissan and minor to the Chevrolet and Ford. Troopers cited Snoddy for a vehicle code violation.
