Two people were taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center after a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon in Patton Township.
Township police said Daniel Laplante, of State College, was turning left from North Atherton Street onto Colonnade Boulevard at 1:53 p.m. when he pulled into the path of a vehicle driven by Mi Kyeong Park, of Port Matilda.
After Park’s vehicle was struck, it traveled off the road into a traffic light control box, which caused the light to lose power. Laplante and Park were taken to Mount Nittany by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.
Traffic at the intersection had to be directed for several hours while temporary repairs were performed on the signal box.
