Woman injured in crash, taken to UPMC Altoona

A woman was injured Friday in a two-vehicle crash.

A tractor-trailer driven by Michael L. Light, 48, of Tyrone was in a private driveway off East Pleasant Valley Boulevard in Snyder Township. Light pulled forward, stopped at the edge of the road, then continued onto the roadway, according to state police at Hollidaysburg.

Police said that Robin M. Church, 48, of Tyrone was driving on East Pleasant Valley Boulevard and observed the tractor-trailer’s movement. She steered left to avoid the tractor-trailer, but the two vehicles collided.

Light lost control of the tractor-trailer, which slid across the road. Church’s Hyundai Tucson then hit a building with the front end of the vehicle.

Light was uninjured. Church was transported to UPMC Altoona for her injuries.
