YOUNG TOWNSHIP — There were no serious injuries reported in a two-vehicle accident that occurred at 1:10 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Snyder Hill Road and Route 119 by Wal-Mart, Young Township.

According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police, a 2007 Nissan Sentra driven by Ty J. Kelly, 18, Rossiter, was traveling south on Route 119, and a 2000 Subaru Impreza driven by Leonard A. Calhoun, 25, Brockway, was traveling north on Route 119 as Kelly attempted a left turn from Route 119 onto Snyder Hill Road and turned directly into the path of Calhoun's vehicle, which struck Kelly's vehicle head on.
