HUMMELS WHARF — One person was hurt in a traffic accident in Snyder County this afternoon. Snyder County Communications tells WKOK the accident happened around 1:15 pm Thursday at the intersection of Routes 11 and 15 and Mill Road in Monroe Township. Two vehicles were involved in the accident with one person being transported to Geisinger Medical Center for unknown injuries. Selinsgrove State Police say the accident was caused when one of the vehicles pulled out in front of the other. The driver of the at-fault vehicle has been charged.

Northbound traffic was very slow on the strip this afternoon. The accident happened while the Old Trail is blocked for construction, so there was no easy outlet for traffic.
