McAdoo driver cited for crash
Rush Township police have released the details of a Nov. 6 accident that occurred on SR309, at the intersection with Tide Road.
Ronald Simasek, 82, of McAdoo, was traveling north on Claremont Avenue (SR309) approaching the intersection at 10:25 a.m. At the same time Laurie Robinson, of Frackville, was northbound and had stopped in the left turn lane. Assuming Simasek was going to turn onto Tide Road, Robinson made the turn, colliding with the Simasek vehicle.
Neither Simasek nor Robinson were injured, but a passenger in the Simasek car, Rose Yanetti, 79, of McAdoo, was transported to St. Luke's University Hospital-Miners' Campus, Coaldale.
Robinson will be cited.
