A two-vehicle accident last night delayed motor traffic along a major highway.
At approximately 9:20PM, Manor Township and Kittanning Township firefighters were alerted to the two-vehicle accident along State Route 422.
The accident – which occurred near the border of the two municipalities – looked to be near Wray Plan Road before it crests the top of the hillside. Traffic was stopped in both directions along the roadway, with traffic going into Kittanning Township backed-up for approximately a half-mile.
According to Manor Township Assistant Fire Chief Chad Evans who was Officer-in-Charge for the incident, the two departments and Pennsylvania State Police troopers from the Kittanning barracks responded to a head-on collision along the roadway, but nobody was injured in the crash.
Both parties signed off at the scene and were not transported by Kittanning #6 emergency medical responders to receive further treatment.
Firefighters returned to their respective fire stations about an hour after the original call was reported.
The incident is still under investigation by State Police troopers.
Both vehicles involved in the incident suffered disabling damage and were totaled.
