Wreck injures city woman, 84

SUNBURY — A Sunbury woman is in serious condition following a two-vehicle accident in Rockefeller Township Friday that shut down traffic on Route 890 for about an hour.

Darlis Garman, 84, of Sunbury, was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville for injuries from the accident that occurred about noon.

The collision occurred at Route 890 about a mile east of its intersection with Route 61 in Sunbury.

According to state police at Stonington, Garman had stopped her 2008 red Cadillac CTS at a stop sign at Kehres Road and Route 890.

However, Garman failed to yield the right of way while attempting to turn left onto Route 890 and pulled into the path of Jonathan Malick, 39, of Sunbury, who was driving a dark blue 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck eastbound.

Malick said he could not stop his truck in time and hit the Cadillac broadside on the driver’s side.

Malick had a minor injury that didn’t require treatment. Americus Hose Company ambulance transported Garman from the scene. She will be charged for a stop sign violation, state police said.

Traffic was turned around at Peace Valley Road to the west and Plum Creek Road to the east during accident response. Route 890 opened about an hour later.

Attending to the accident were Upper Augusta Volunteer Fire Dept., East Sunbury Hose Company, Friendship Hose Company No. 1, Sunbury Fire Police and the Pennsylvania State Police.

Paul’s Auto Body and Painting of Sunbury towed both vehicles from the scene. The truck had damage to its front bumper; side air bags were deployed on the driver’s side of the Cadillac.
