State Police responders are reporting that two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash that occurred Monday night on Route 227 in Oilcreek Township in northern Venango County.
Troopers say 20 year-old Carl Bickel, from Pleasantville, and 21 year-old Breanna Williams, from Grand Valley, were treated at Titusville Hospital after the incident. No injury report was available.
Police say the crash happened shortly before 10:00 PM Monday when a car driven by Bickel sideswiped an S-U-V in an attempt by Bickel to pass the other vehicle. Bickel’s car traveled off the left side of the highway and into the woods, striking several trees.
Both occupants of the S-U-V, operated by 46 year-old Wendy Huff, from Titusville, escaped uninjured.
