Three Injured in Two-Vehicle Burnside Township Crash

BURNSIDE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – Punxsutawney-based State Police say a two-vehicle accident occurred on November 22 at 1:35 p.m., on State Route 219, in Burnside Township, Clearfield County.

According to police, the crash involved Benjamin L. Huether, 43, of Northern Cambria, driving a 2006 Ford F-450 and Kelly M. Bingham, 20, of Westover, driving a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica.

Police say the crash occurred as both vehicles were traveling along SR 219 about 30 seconds apart, rounding a curve to the right and going slightly downhill.

According to police, Heuther’s F-450 began to slide on ice, struck the guard rails on the east side of the roadway with the left side of the vehicle, and continued along the guard rails for approximately 138 feet.

The F-450 then came to a rest across the roadway facing west with the rear of the vehicle against the guard rail and the front across the center line of the road.

Bingham applied her brakes to avoid impact with Heuther’s vehicle and also began to slide.

Police say the right rear of the Pacifica struck the front end of the F-450.

Heuther was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was uninjured.

Bingham and two passengers – Gina A. Bingham, 44, and a 1-year-old male infant, both of Westover – were transported by Northern Cambria EMS to a hospital in Northern Cambria for treatment of minor injuries.

Bingham and her passengers were secured with seat belts and a child safety seat at the time of the collision.
