State police at Erie said a motor vehicle accident occurred as Richard T. Shirley, 57, of Erie, was traveling north on High Street, just south of Fifth Street, in front of Country Fair. A 17-year-old Union City girl was also driving north on High Street directly behind Shirley’s 2001 Dodge Dakota.
Police said Shirley applied his brakes for a stopped vehicle that was turning and the girl was unable to stop her 2004 Toyota Camry in time. The girl’s vehicle struck the rear bumper of Shirley’s vehicle, causing heavy front end damage to her vehicle, which had to be towed from the scene.
Neither were injured in the crash. The name was not released of the 17 year old Union City girl.
