IN BRIEF | Three injured in Route 30 crash

— Three people received minor injuries Sunday in a two-vehicle crash on Route 30 in Somerset County, police said.

Police said the vehicles were both traveling west in Quemahoning Township and that the collision occurred as the driver of a Dodge Ram truck was attempting to make a left turn into a private parking lot.

The vehicle behind it, a Ford F-150, driven by Matthew K. Kodrin, 17, of Boswell, tried to pass the truck, striking it in the process, police said.

The Dodge truck’s driver, Quintin M. Wyandt, 19, of Hooversville – as well as Kodrin and a passenger in the Ford, were all taken to Memorial Medical Center in Johns-town for treatment.

Kodrin will be cited for careless driving, state police said.

Wire stolen from windmill towers

State police in Somerset said someone stole $10,000 worth of wire from windmill towers being stored in Somerset sometime earlier this month.

The estimate to fix the damaged turbine is $5,000, police said. Anyone with information may call police at 445-4104.
