UPDATE: [5:00 p.m.] Two were transported with non-life-threatening injuries Monday morning after a traffic collision involving two semis and a GMC truck, Mills Police Department Cpl. Kate Acord told Oil City Monday afternoon.

A semi headed north on the West Belt Loop (State Highway 257) was approaching the intersection with State Highway 20-26 when the light turned red. Acord said the truck was unable to stop and collided with an eastbound GMC. The GMC was pushed sideways into the second trailer of another semi traveling alongside, also eastbound.

The driver of the northbound semi and the driver of the GMC were transported for injuries, Acord said.

Intermittent snow showers were present throughout the morning, and road conditions are a likely factor in the crash, Acord said.

Driver impairment is not suspected but citations are pending, Acord said.
