State College police have released the details on a crash that tied up traffic for a time Monday on the 2600 block of East College Avenue.
According to the crash report, at about 11:45 a.m., Johannes Schokker, 84, of Altoona, was turning around in the lot by A&A Auto Parts when he attempted to make a right turn out of the lot onto East College. Schokker reported pulling out behind a car in front of him, but didn’t see a second vehicle coming toward him.
