PERRY ­— An accident at the intersection of Route 20A and Route 246 claimed one life and sent more to the hospital.
Around 12:20 p.m., a minivan carrying six passengers from New Jersey was heading westbound on 20A when a pick-up truck, with only the operator in it, heading northbound on 246 allegedly entered the intersection and struck the van.
Officers said an investigation revealed that the pick-up truck did not yield the right of way to the minivan but they are still figuring out if the traffic light was red or yellow when the truck entered the intersection.
