Two-Vehicle Crash in Cherrytree Twp.

A two-vehicle accident occurred on State Highway 8 just north of Black Rd in Cherrytree Township, Venango County, on January 30, 2024, around 9:09 AM. However, no injuries were reported from the incident, according to the Pennsylvania State Police – Franklin.

The crash happened when a Ford Focus, identified as Unit 2, was slowing down to make a left turn into a parking lot while traveling south on State Highway 8. The other vehicle, a 2009 General Motors Corp Envoy, also traveling southbound, attempted to overtake the Ford Focus on the left.

Eventually, the driver of the Envoy arrived at the Pennsylvania State Police station in Franklin to report the crash after realizing their vehicle had made contact with the Ford Focus.

The Ford Focus came to a stop in a parking lot off the west side of the roadway. Both vehicles sustained minor damage – the Envoy at the 4 o’clock position and the Ford Focus at the 10 o’clock position.

The driver of the Envoy has been charged with violating section 3305 of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code, which pertains to limitations on overtaking on the left.
