Distracted driver nails two porches

 

MAHONING TWP. — A Danville man is being cited for running a red light after he hit another vehicle and two houses near Geisinger Medical Center Thursday. The Press Enterprise says Mike Mills was heading east on Bloom Road just before 2pm when he says he was distracted and realized too late that the light had changed.

 

Mills ran the light, and his vehicle struck another car carrying a couple from the Kulpmont area. Mills’ car then jumped the curb, slid on an icy sidewalk at 704 Bloom Road, and hit the wooden step to the porch. The SUV also slammed into the porch at 706-08 Bloom, damaging stone-and-wood support columns at both ends. (The Great Matt Bowen)
