The Southern Berks News - - LOCAL NEWS - By Tony Phyril­las @TonyPhyril­las on Twit­ter

Po­lice re­sponded to a two-ve­hi­cle crash Wed­nes­day morn­ing at Route 100 and Cedarville Road.

North­bound Route 100 was blocked for more than an house after the 10 a.m. crash be­tween a mini­van and a stake body truck.

A po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mined that the mini­van, driven by Tammy Fer­gu­son, of Dou­glassville, was trav­el­ing east­bound on West Cedarville Road to­ward Route 100 when the ve­hi­cle failed to stop at a red traf­fic light at the in­ter­sec­tion.

As the mini­van en­tered the four-way in­ter­sec­tion, it was struck on the driver’s side door by the front by a land­scap­ing truck driven by Joseph An­thony of Read­ing, po­lice said.

The im­pact caused the mini­van to over­turn and come to rest on its roof, po­lice said.

Both driv­ers were eval­u­ated at the scene by Good­will Am­bu­lance per­son­nel. No in­juries were re­ported at the time of the crash, po­lice said.

Both ve­hi­cle’s sus­tained ma­jor dam­age and had to be towed from the scene.

Po­lice is­sued a ci­ta­tion to Fer­gu­son for fail­ure to obey traf­fic-con­trol sig­nals, ac­cord­ing to a post on the de­part­ment’s web­site.

North Coven­try Town­ship Po­lice were as­sisted at the scene by Norco Fire Com­pany and Norco Fire Po­lice.
