A silver Chevy crashed into a red Honda and a utility pole in Harmar on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019.

No one was injured in a two-car crash Thursday morning in Harmar that left a car’s rear end propped on the side of another car and its front end smashed against a utility pole.

The crash happened at Hite and Russellton roads around 8 a.m., Harmar police Chief Jason Domaratz said.

A car driven by Mary Zetz, 93, of West Deer sideswiped a car driven by Richard Smail, 40, of Ford City as it turned left onto Russellton, Domaratz said. Zetz’s car then struck a utility pole.

There was significant damage to the utility pole, Domaratz said. A temporary one was being placed at the intersection until more permanent repairs can be made, the chief said.

“From the electric company, it sounds like it’s going to be a very long process,” Domaratz said.

A spokesperson from West Penn Power, which provides electrical service in the township, did not immediately return a call.

Its website did not list any outages in the township as of 3:30 p.m.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
