At least five-to-seven people received minor injuries Saturday afternoon in a series of rear-end collisions at a red light on Route 257 in Seneca.
State Police tell KQW the incidents began when 63 year-old Albert Texter, from Emlenton, failed to stop in time to avoid the last of three vehicles stopped at a red light near the intersection with East State Road. Troopers say Texter’s pickup struck the rear of a car operated by 51 year-old Mark Lavery, from Pleasantville. The Lavery vehicle was pushed into a car driven by 27 year-old Sonny Carbaugh, from Seneca. Carbaugh’s car was propelled into an S-U-V operated by 68 year-old Mary Lindenberg, from Seneca.
Reports indicate that Texter, Lavery, Carbaugh and two passengers sustained minor injuries. Troopers had no details as to whether any injuries were sustained by Lindenberg, or two juvenile passengers in the Carbaugh vehicle.
