Mount Carmel woman treated for head injury after accident
MOUNT CARMEL - A 19-year-old Mount Carmel woman suffered a head injury in a two-car "T-bone" crash Thursday morning at Second and Market streets.
Patrolman Justin Stelma reported Amber Lynne Miscavage, of 429 E. Sixth St., was transported by AREA Services Ambulance to Geisinger-Shamokin Area Community Hospital following the 9:30 a.m. accident. Miscavage underwent emergency room treatment for a head injury and was released.
Stelma said Raymond Bartosic, 66, of 5 S. Walnut St., Mount Carmel, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina west on Second Street when his car skidded through a stop sign on the snow and ice-covered road and struck a 2000 Saturn driven south on Market Street by Miscavage.
Bartosic escaped injury and was able to drive his car from the scene after it sustained front-end damage. Miscavage's auto sustained moderate front-end damage and was towed from the scene by Huber's Collision and Towing of Mount Carmel.
Stelma said Bartosic will not be cited because of the icy road conditions.
Assisting at the scene were borough Chief of Police Todd Owens, Mount Carmel Township Chief of Police Brian Hollenbush, firefighters from Anthracite Fire Company, Mount Carmel Area Rescue Squad and fire police.
The scene was cleared at approximately 10 a.m.
