McKean, PA (June 14, 2022) – Around 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday morning, June 14, one person was injured in a delivery truck accident in McKean.
According to McKean officials, the accident happened in the eastbound lanes of I-90 around the area of Sterrettania Road. When police arrived at the scene, they found that a minivan and a delivery truck collided with each other due to reasons that are not entirely known. Both of the vehicles sustained front-end damage as a result of the accident.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One patient in the minivan, who has not yet been identified, was rushed to a local hospital for treatment. Their condition is not yet known at this time.
The minivan had to be towed from the scene, which blocked the road for some time. This led to delays in the area.
