Vehicle went through stop sign, causing Elysburg crash
ELYSBURG - A New York man ran a stop sign at Center and Market streets Wednesday night, causing a two-vehicle collision, according to accident details released Friday by Ralpho Township Police.
Michael Dalexis, 40, of New York, was driving a Nissan Maxima west on East Center Street about 10:45 p.m. when he struck a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Michelle Rollenhagen, 42, of Ashland, which was traveling north on North Market Street.
The force of impact caused the Nissan to strike and shear a utility pole. The Jeep crashed into a front porch at 103 N. Market St.
Dalexis was taken to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, where he was treated and discharged Friday. A juvenile passenger was also treated at the hospital. Police did not indicate whether or not passengers Fabiola Lamarque, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and two other children were injured.
Neither Rollenhagen nor her passenger, twin sister Melissa Rollenhagen, were treated for injuries, police said.
Both vehicles were towed. The utility pole was replaced early Thursday morning.
Assisting at the scene were Elysburg Ambulance, AREA Services, Elysburg Fire Department and Ralpho Fire Company.
