— SUNBURY - A car that failed to yield at a downtown intersection caused a midday crash in the city, according to police.

A Jeep Compass, driven by Gwendolyn Murphy of Lewisburg, pulled out into the intersection of Second and Arch streets in Sunbury and hit the side of a Sunbury Motor Company service truck, driven by Chad Leitzel.

Neither Murphy, Leitzel, or the passengers in their vehicles was seriously injured, though Murphy was being treated for a minor injury, said Lt. James Taylor of the Sunbury Police Department.

The four-way intersection at Second and Arch streets was blocked for about 40 minutes as crews worked to clean up the accident.

Antifreeze from the Jeep Compass spilled into the roadway and was washed away by Sunbury Fire Department, who responded to the call.

The intersection is a relatively safe one for vehicles, Taylor said.

"I don't see very many accidents here at all," Taylor said.

Murphy will be cited for the crash, Taylor said.
