| March 11, 2019

FARMINGTON TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A Clintonville woman involved in a State Route 66 crash on Saturday afternoon escaped injury while two others were transported to a local hospital.

According to Marienville-based State Police, around 3:31 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, 60-year-old Tonya M. Judy, of Clintonville, and 68-year-old John K. Lea, of Pittsburgh, were involved in the collision.

Judy was driving a 2007 Chevrolet HHR and Lea was driving a 2016 Nissan Frontier, both traveling south on State Route 66 at its intersection with Anderson Drive, in Farmington Township, Clarion County.

Police say Judy was following Lea when Lea began slowing down to make a left turn onto Anderson Drive. Judy was also preparing to make the left turn onto Anderson Drive.

According to police, the initial impact occurred as Judy’s vehicle left the southbound lane and entered the left side of State Route 66 and then attempted to turn left onto Anderson Drive, interfering with Lea’s vehicle. Both vehicles attempted the turn consecutively, and Judy’s front passenger side impacted Lea’s vehicle on the driver’s side quarter panel door area, causing damage to both vehicles.

John Lea and his passenger – 37-year-old Nicole M. Lea, of Pittsburgh – suffered suspected minor injuries and were transported to Clarion Hospital by Clarion County Ambulance.

Judy was not injured.

All occupants were using seat belts.

Farmington Township Volunteer Fire Company assisted at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
