HARRISVILLE -- One person was injured when a Jeep Cherokee crashed into the back of a flatbed truck carrying rebar Thursday evening in Harrisville.
The accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. at 700 N. Wall Ave., said Harrisville Sgt. Chris Rowley.
The flatbed was stopped, trying to make a left turn into a Sinclair Service Station, when the driver of the Cherokee reported that he was distracted, looked up and then ran into the rear of the truck, Rowley said.
The rebar went through the windshield of the Cherokee. The Cherokee sustained significant front-end damage.
The driver of the Cherokee identified himself to a Standard-Examiner photographer at the scene as Jonathan Moody. He wasn't injured but had some blood on his face that came from the passenger, who suffered a head injury.
The passenger was transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The driver of the flatbed wasn't hurt.
The names of the passenger in the Cherokee and the driver of the flatbed weren't available Thursday from police, who were unable to confirm the name of the Cherokee's driver.
The driver of the flatbed and Cherokee were both cited in connection with the crash, Rowley said. Details about the citations were not available Thursday night.
In addition to Harrisville police, law officers from Pleasant View and ambulances from North Ogden and Ogden responded to the crash. Police remained on the scene for about an hour.
