PAXINOS - Three people were injured Thursday after a sedan pulled into the path of an oncoming handicapped van at Routes 61 and 487, according to state police.
Trooper Wendy Keefer, of the Stonington station, said Andrea Beers, 24, of Paxinos, was attempting to turn left from Route 61 onto Route 487 in a 1998 Buick Regal at 2 p.m. when she drove into the path of a northbound Ford E250 driven by Brandon Thornton, 30, of Myerstown.
Both vehicles came to rest on impact in the intersection.
Thornton, who was not injured, was driving from Lebanon VA Medical Center to ManorCare nursing home in Sunbury. A nurse, Cara Koons, 22, of Shamokin Dam, and passenger Harold London, 88, of ManorCare, both suffered injuries.
London and Beers were transported to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, while Koons was transported to Sunbury Community Hospital, Keefer said. Condition updates were unavailable.
Keefer said Beers will face multiple citations.
Both vehicles sustained front-end damage.
The van is owned by Ultimate Transportation, Newmanstown, Keefer said.
