Two injured in Somerset crash  

SOMERSET – Two motorists were taken to Memorial Medical Center following a Thursday afternoon crash on North Center Avenue, Somerset 911 officials said.

The accident briefly closed the road after a Jeep and another vehicle collided near the road’s 1400 block, a 911 supervisor said.

Crews were dispatched to the scene at approximately 2:20 p.m.

Both vehicles were towed from the accident scene by 3:30 p.m., 911 officials said.

Conditions of both motorists were not immediately available.

State police were investigating, 911 officials said.

Truck runs into fire hydrant

A Texas trucker was cited Thursday after his tractor-trailer ran over a fire hydrant on Menoher Boulevard and then left the scene, West Hills police said.

Victor Dominguez, 59, of Houston, hit the hydrant after missing or disregarding a detour on the road, causing the hydrant to flood the roadway and apparently cause water issues for nearby homes, West Hills Regional Officer Matthew Watts said.

As of noon, water had been turned off at the hydrant and crews from Greater Johnstown Water Authority were busy working to replace the hydrant, he said.

Dominguez was apparently pulled over further down the road near the former Johnstown Brewing Co. and cited for leaving the scene of an accident, falsifying a driver’s logbook and failing to obey traffic control devices, Watts said.

Crews were dispatched to the scene at 8:31 a.m., Watts said.
