Two vehicle crash

    On 04/05/2017 the North Coventry Twp. Police Dept. responded to the Route 422 east off ramp to Route 724 on the report of a two vehicle crash.  It was found that both units were traveling on the Route 422 east off ramp.  Unit #2, operated by Natalie J. Nau, was in front of unit #1, operated by Jannella M. Sutton-Rivera.  At the intersection of the Route 422 east off ramp and the Route 422 west off ramp to Route 724, unit #2 was stopped due to traffic, waiting to merge.  Opr. #1 did follow unit #2 at a distance closer than was reasonable and prudent for the speed and conditions that existed and failed to observe unit #2 stopped in front of her.  Unit #1 then struck unit #2 from behind.  Unit #1 sustained disabling front end damage, and was towed from the scene.  Unit #2 sustained functional rear end damage and was driven from the scene.  No injures were reported at the time of the crash.  Opr. #1 was cited for PMVC 3310 Following Too Closely.
