The driver of a car involved in a two-car accident along Route 908 near the Route 28 on-ramp in Harrison talks on his phone as emergency personal tend to the driver of the other car on Friday, Oct. 6, 2017.

A 67-year-old man suffered minor injuries in a two-car crash in Harrison on Friday morning, police said.

The crash happened at Exit 16 and Route 908 about 11:15 a.m.

Harrison Sgt. Justin Bouch identified the injured man as Andrew Barlow of Buffalo Township.

He said Barlow had been making a lefthand turn onto Route 908 from the southbound off-ramp from Route 28 when a vehicle driven by Michael Generelli, 38, of Freeport collided with his car. Generelli had been driving west on Route 908, Bouch said.

“That is such a bad intersection,” Bouch said.

Barlow was taken to Allegheny Valley Hospital to be evaluated, and Generelli refused medical treatment, Bouch said. Both drivers were the only occupants in their vehicles.

“Everybody was OK,” Bouch said.

Bouch said the crash was accidental. No charges are expected to be filed.
