PENNSDALE – Four people were injured in a collision on Beacon Light Road near here on Monday afternoon.

The crash occurred around 2:50 p.m. when an SUV and a Buick LaSabre collided at the intersection of East Lime Bluff and Beacon Light roads.

There were two people in each car, said Trooper James Keeler, who was at the scene investigating the crash.

One person was taken by ambulance to Williamsport Regional Medical Center, a second was taken by ambulance to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville and a third injured person was taken to the same trauma center by a medical helicopter that landed in the middle of East Lime Bluff Road.

Keeler said the driver of the blue Buick who was transported to Geisinger by medical helicopter needed to be extricated from the vehicle by responders at the scene.

“The fourth person involved wasn’t seriously injured and declined medical care,” said Brad Nichols, chief of Muncy Volunteer Fire Co.

The names and other information about the four people involved were not released as of Monday night.

According to state Department of Transportation, the intersection on Route 2053 was closed between Chippewa Road and John Brady Drive for about an hour after the crash.
