The intersection of Route 19 and Rowan Road in Cranberry was temporary shut down Monday morning while emergency crews responded to a three-car accident.
Police Sgt. Chuck Mascellino said a 44-year-old Cranberry man was traveling north on Route 19 at about 6:30 a.m. when he apparently ran a red light and hit two cars heading in the opposite direction.
Mascellino said both of the southbound vehicles were turning left onto Rowan Road when they were struck.
“They were still in the turning lane,” he said.
The 65-year-old driver of the first southbound vehicle received minor injuries in the crash, Mascellino said. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
There were no other injuries.
Mascellino said charges are pending against the Cranberry driver for traffic violations in the incident.
Firefighters remained on scene to direct traffic until the accident was cleared. Crews also contained fluids leaking from the vehicles, Fire Chief Brian Kovac said.
