SLIPPERY ROCK TWP., Pa. (WKBN) – Investigators say a three-vehicle crash in Slippery Rock Township was caused by a vehicle that failed to stop at a traffic light.

The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on a portion of US-422 near State Route 388.

Pennsylvania State Police said the driver of a 2006 International Harvester failed to stop for traffic at a light, veering into oncoming traffic in the eastbound lane, jack-knifing and striking a Chevrolet Impala on the shoulder.

The back tire of the cab hit that vehicle while the vehicle continued traveling, striking a GMC Sierra, which was stopped at the signal.

The Harvester’s gas tank then leaked onto the roadway, and crews were called to clean up the mess.

That driver was taken to the hospital for suspected minor injuries, while no other injuries were reported, according to police.

The roadway was closed for about an hour while the vehicles were towed from the scene.

Charges are pending.
