LAMAR-A three-vehicle collision on Interstate 80 June 22 left no one injured, state police at Lamar said. Eva E. Bradford-Miles, 58, of Calumet City, Ill., was driving east on the three-laned interstate in the right lane, and came up too fast behind the tractor trailer Niclas L. Tressler, 32, of Selinsgrove, was driving, so she cut into the middle lane, police said. When she did so, she over-corrected and crashed into the side of Tressler's freightliner with her 2005 Ford 3DC; the impact sent her Ford across the middle and left lanes, causing it to strike the guard rail head on, police said. When her Ford came to rest in the left lane against the guard rail, James M. Grahm II, 34, of State College, struck her vehicle in the side with his 2005 Mazda, police said. Only Grahm reported minor injuries, but did not want an ambulance; all wore seatbelts, police said. Lamar Twp. Fire Department assisted on the scene, and both Bradford-Miles and Tressler's vehicles were towed, police said. Bradford-Miles was charged with careless driving and roadways laned for traffic, police said.
