Smale and her husband, Russell, 87, and Hippler, were all injured and taken by West End ambulance to the Pocono Medical Center, East Stroudsburg. Troopers cited Smale for traveling at an (un) safe speed.

Troopers investigated a two vehicle crash about 10:08 a.m. at the intersection 209 and Rodenbach Lane, in Chestnuthill Township.

Troopers said Cynthia J. Johnson, 69, of Kunkletown, failed to stop for a stop sign at the intersection and her 1996 Subaru Legacy was struck by a 2006 GMC Yukon driven by Linda Poccia, 57, of Saylorsburg.

Both drivers were injured and treated at the scene by West End ambulance personnel.
