An ap­par­ent red-light vi­o­la­tion was the cause of a three-ve­hi­cle crash at the in­ter­sec­tion of South Atherton Street and Warner Boule­vard/Shin­gle­town Road on Thurs­day, ac­cord­ing to State Col­lege po­lice Lt. Bradley Smail.

Smail said a gray sedan was trav­el­ing to­ward State Col­lege on South Atherton and at­tempt­ing to turn left onto Shin­gle­town Road when it col­lided with a Stauf­fer’s school van that was trav­el­ing south­bound to­ward Boals­burg. He said it ap­pears as though the van went through the red light.

The third ve­hi­cle did not re­main on the scene, and po­lice are still try­ing to fig­ure out its in­volve­ment.

Mi­nor in­juries were re­ported, in­clud­ing to one stu­dent and one of the drivers, ac­cord­ing to Boals­burg As­sis­tant Fire Chief Greg Al­ters, but they were eval­u­ated and treated by Cen­tre LifeLink EMS on the scene and did not have to be trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal.

The am­bu­lances stuck around, how­ever, to help keep the four stu­dents warm un­til their par­ents picked them up, he said.

The north­bound lane on Shin­gle­town Road was closed down as Boals­burg Fire Com­pany crews cleaned up the scene, while Al­pha fire po­lice di­rected the rest of the traf­fic through the in­ter­sec­tion.

Both ve­hi­cles sus­tained front-end dam­age and had to be towed by John Ten­nis Tow­ing.

The scene took about an hour to clear, Smail said.
