Van Sideswipes Tractor Trailer

One person was hurt when a minivan sideswiped a tractor trailer Friday afternoon near Kane.

State police say the van driven by 20-year-old Stevie Girts of Kane was on Route 321 just before 2 p.m. when it traveled into the opposite lane and sideswiped the tractor trailer.

Girts was taken to Kane Community Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries and then released.

The tractor trailer driver, 42-year-old Victor Tindle of Duncansville and his passenger 37-year-old Adam Lees of Altoona were not hurt. A baby in Girts’ van was in a child safety seat and was not hurt.

Girts was cited for a traffic violation.
