Minor injuries were suffered in a two-vehicle accident that occurred at 2:05 p.m. on Friday at the intersection of Snyder Hill Road and Route 119.

According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police, a Dodge Neon driven by James Downey, 26, of Kane, was traveling north on Route 119 when a Buick driven by Claire Schrock, 95, Valier, turned in front of Downey, causing a two-vehicle collision in the intersection.

Police said Downey's vehicle was towed from the scene by South Side Service, and Schrock's vehicle was able to be driven.

Police said a passenger in Downey's vehicle, Jessica Kosko, 19, Pittsburgh, sustained a minor injury to her knee and was not transported to the hospital.
