A two-vehicle accident Thursday evening in Rostraver heavily damaged one truck and sent the driver of another to Monongahela Valley Hospital in Carroll Township.

The accident occurred around 8 p.m. at the intersection of state Route 201 and Rostraver Road.

Cody Miller of Perryopolis was turning left from Route 201 North onto Rostraver Road when his pickup truck collided with an SUV driven by Tom Amati of Rostraver, who police said was traveling north on Route 201 towards Donora.

Amati, 64, had to be helped from his vehicle and was placed onto a stretcher for transport to the hospital.

Each driver told Rostraver police he had a green traffic light. Officer Richard Beranek said two witnesses stated Amati had a green light.

Drivers turning left at the intersection have to yield if they do not have a green arrow.

Miller, whose hand was bleeding but refused medical attention, said he was stopped in the turning lane “for at least a minute and a half” before turning left.

Miller, still in his work uniform, was wearing a seat belt. His air bag was deployed and the front passenger wheel had dislodged from its axle.

Amati's Ford Explorer sustained heavy front end damage. Both vehicles were towed.

Beranek said it is uncertain if charges would be filed. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, he said, and Amati's speed was undetermined.

The Rostraver Central Fire Department responded to the scene as well as Rostraver and Monessen police and Rostraver/West Newton Ambulance Service.
