A motorist involved in an accident along the intersection of Route 1 and Cherry Lane this afternoon narrowly avoided running into a stream near Laurel Lake.
The incident happened shortly before 6 p.m. today. According to witnesses, a black Toyota Camry traveling east bound on Cherry Lane ran a red light and struck another vehicle knocking it into a median along Cherry Lane.
The Camry, according to witnesses, veered off the road and slid down the embankment toward Bear Branch, a stream that feeds into Laurel Lake, but managed to stop feet before sliding in.
A worker from store told Laurel Patch that no one appeared injured or required medical attention.
