One man was injured in that collision between a car and a garbage truck on Oil City’s South Side on Tuesday morning.
Streets were closed for nearly five hours, and electric crews were on the scene even longer after the crash at the intersection of Central Avenue and East First Street around 9:30 AM. The driver of the car was injured, and the garbage truck hit a utility pole before slamming into the historic Latonia Theatre building.
The names of the drivers were not released.
Some streets were still closed to traffic until well after 2:00 PM. Utility workers were still in action as darkness descended late Tuesday afternoon.
