State College Man Extricated From Car After Sunday Afternoon Crash
A State College man had to be “mechanically extricated” from his car after a traffic accident Sunday afternoon, according to police.
Charles Lombard, 38, was driving southbound on South Atherton Street when a Ford F-150 failed to stop at a red light at the intersection with Warner Boulevard.
Lombard’s Hyundai stuck the passenger side of Pleasant Gap resident’s Tracy McMasters truck. Police say an eyewitness confirmed that McMasters, 44, was at fault for the accident. He has since been issued a citation for running the signal.
The front of Lombard’s Hyundai was damaged significantly enough to require State College Police and the Boalsburg Fire Company to pull him from the car.
Police say Lombard was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center after complaining of pain, though they could not confirm the extent of his injuries. He was traveling with a passenger, who was not injured.
