Close call on River Road

By TOM KANE

DAMASCUS, PA — A Chevy pick-up truck, driven by Clarence Reeves, 22, of Lava, NY, swerved to avoid striking an on-coming car on River Road, hit a snow bank and flipped on its side, blocking traffic for an hour on January 2.

The accident occurred one-half mile north of Route 652 at 3:00 p.m.

Reeves sustained minor injuries and was taken by the Tusten Volunteer Ambulance Service to Wayne Memorial Hospital as a precaution where he was treated and released.

The on-coming car was driven by Richard Braverman of Beach Lake, PA. Braverman, who lives on River Road, helped Reeves out of his truck and went home to call police.

Braverman was not injured.

“He was coming around a sharp curve, moving fast, and swerved to avoid hitting me,” Braverman said.

Pennsylvania State Trooper Gerald Powell issued two citations to Reeves.

“The citations are for driving in a single lane, meaning he didn’t move to the right enough, and for not wearing a seat belt,” Powell said.
