Two children were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries following a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of West Smith Street and Mead Avenue on Wednesday.

The city of Corry Police Department and Corry Fire Department were dispatched to the scene of a two-vehicle accident with unknown injuries at 5:39 p.m.

"When the guys arrived, they found two vehicles into a pole with moderate damage," Corry Fire Chief Jim Lathrop said. "Upon further investigation, they found there were five kids and one driver in one vehicle, and one driver in the second vehicle."

Barbara Anderson, 51, of Corry, was the driver of the vehicle carrying five children. The kids were a 10-year-old girl, 7-year-old boy, 5-year-old girl and two 4-year-old boys.

The driver of the other vehicle was Lucas Hull, 35, of Corry.

Police said the two vehicles collided in the intersection of West Smith Street and Mead Avenue.

Anderson, who was facing southbound, pulled out from a posted stop sign on Mead Avenue and turned left to proceed eastbound on West Smith Street when her vehicle collided with Hull's vehicle, which also traveling eastbound on West Smith Street, according to police.

After the initial impact, Anderson's vehicle was then pushed into a utility pole. Lathrop said it appeared the vehicles had hit in the intersection and then slid over into the pole, but the pole did not appear to be damaged.

Two of the minors in Anderson's vehicle were transported to Corry Memorial Hospital, an affiliate of LECOM Health, via Corry Ambulance and an ambulance from Clymer Volunteer Fire Department.

Police said the 5-year-old female was transported to the hospital for a minor head injury and the 7-year-old male was taken to the hospital for a small laceration to his facial area.

The other children and two drivers were not injured.

Anderson's vehicle sustained disabling damage in the 1 o'clock position and Hull's vehicle sustained disabling damage in the 12 o'clock position from the collision, according to police.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene by Leroy's Towing.

Police said Anderson will be cited for stop sign and seatbelt violations.

The make and models of the two vehicles in the accident are unknown at this time. A news release from Corry City Police was not ready as of press time.

Members of Corry Fire Department were back in service at 6:55 p.m.
