PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A Brookville man suffered moderate injuries following a motorcycle-versus-vehicle accident at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Dutchtown Road and Route 36/North Main Street.
Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police said Andrew M. Duncan, 35, Punxsy, was stopped at a stop sign at the Dutchtown Road and Route 36/North Main Street intersection, while Thomas E. Curry, 52, Brookville, was traveling north on a 2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide.
Police said Duncan pulled into the intersection and into Curryâ€™s path.
Curry applied the brakes and steered to the right to avoid Duncanâ€™s 2000 Hyundai Accent, but was unable to do so and struck the driverâ€™s side door, police said. Curryâ€™s motorcycle then fell onto its side and traveled east onto Dutchtown Road, police said.
Both Duncan and an 11-year-old passenger were wearing seatbelts and were uninjured, police said. Curry suffered moderate injuries and was transported via Jefferson County EMS to Punxsutawney Area Hospital for treatment. He was wearing a helmet and eye protection, police said.
The Punxsutawney Fire Department and Jefferson County EMS responded to the scene.
