A Blairsville woman suffered serious injuries Friday morning in an accident on Route 22 in Burrell Township.
State police say 38-year-old Tricia Chambers was stopped at a blinking red light at Resort Drive as a coal truck driven by 36-year-old Ryan Schultz of Heilwood approached in the opposite direction, where his traffic light was blinking yellow. As Schultz approached, Chambers pulled out in front of him and they collided.
Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles and were taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown. Chambers suffered serious injuries while Schultz was checked out and then released.
