Truck Hits Tree, Catches on Fire

A Port Allegany man suffered minor injuries in an accident at just after 2 a.m. today on Route 6 in Liberty Township.

State police say 41-year-old Scott Moyer fell asleep at the wheel of his Mack truck, which left the road and hit a tree. The truck went back onto the road and caught on fire.

Police say Moyer got out of the vehicle before it caught on fire. He was taken by ambulance to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital in Coudersport for treatment of his injuries. Moyer will be cited for traffic violations.

Police were assisted at the scene by the Star Hose Company, PennDOT and Portville Trucking.
