A three-car crash that occurred near mile marker 65.7 on Interstaqte 78 westbound in Bethlehem Oct. 8 took place in an area of "heavy traffic congestion," Pennsylvania State Police at Belfast said in a news release issued Thursday.
According to police, the crash occurred when Ihosvany Olive, 41, of Elizabeth, N.J., failed to slow down with traffic ahead of him that was slowing for stopped traffic.
Police said Olive's 2006 Kenworth T80 truck struck a 2009 Volvo driven by a 61-year-old Coatesville, Pa., man that was pushed into a third vehicle—a 2007 Saab 93 driven by a 50-year-old man from Flemington, N.J.
Police said both men were taken to St. Luke's University Hospital in Fountain Hill for treatment of minor neck injuries.
Their cars sustained minor damage, they added.
Olive was not injured in the crash, but his vehicle had to be towed because of "disabling damage due to a fluid leak," police said.
Dewey Fire Company EMS of Hellertown responded to the scene of the 7:41 a.m. accident, according to the news release.
