Injuries are averted in Lynn accident
No one was hurt in a two-vehicle crash at 12:10 p.m. Feb. 2 along Flint Hill Road in Lynn Township.
State police at the Fogelsville barracks said the accident happened when Laura P. Litzenberger, 19, of New Tripoli, pulled her 1999 Dodge Dakota out of a driveway at 7471 Flint Hill Road in an attempt to travel westbound on the roadway. In doing so, she failed to yield to oncoming traffic, causing a 2001 Jeep Wrangler operated by John H. Bernhart, 66, of New Tripoli, who was traveling west at the time, to strike the side of the Dakota.
Police said the Dakota sustained moderate driver's side damages and was able to be driven from the scene. The Jeep received heavy front-end damages and was towed from the scene.
Police said Litzenberger will be cited for failure to yield to oncoming traffic.
