PUNXSUTAWNEY — A two-vehicle accident that occurred at noon Friday along Route 36/North Main Street sent a Punxsy woman to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.

According to Punxsutawney Borough Police, Erika Berringer, Brookville, was driving a Dodge Durango south on North Main Street when she was unable to stop when her brakes locked up, and she struck the rear of a Chevrolet Cavalier stopped in front of her driven by Bill Williams.

Police said a passenger in Williams’ vehicle, Denise Williams, was injured in the crash and was transported by Jefferson County EMS to Punxsutawney Area Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.
