CLAY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A car caught fire after slamming into the back of a snow plow Friday morning in Butler County.

The accident was reported just before 7 a.m. on West Sunbury Road in Clay Township.

“We had a PennDOT truck that had stopped on the roadway to raise its bed and put the anti-skid material in the back of the truck. Then a young lady didn’t realize it was stopped,” Chief Reid Campbell said.

Campbell said the car’s airbags deployed and the driver was “very lucky.”

“The car went three feet under the truck, damaging the rear of the truck. In turn, her car caught fire. The good thing is she self-extricated herself,” Campbell said.

The woman’s name and condition haven’t been released.
