Her vehicle then struck Chief Harvey in the leg as he standing between the two police cruisers. Mr. Berry’s vehicle overturned and came to rest on its passenger side.

Mr. Berry and his passengers, Trulie Berry (wife), age 21, and Elizebeth Berry (daughter), age two months, were transported via ambulance to the Muhlenberg Community Hospital for treatment. Mr. Berry and his wife had to be extricated from the vehicle by mechanical means. Mr. and Mrs. Berry were wearing seatbelts. Their daughter was restrained in a child safety seat.
