Two cars were involved in an accident at the intersection of South New Street and Fourth Street after 5 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Michael Crabtree, ’19, said he was attempting to make a left onto South New Street when he collided with the other vehicle. Crabtree was the only one in his car and was not hurt.

The Bethlehem Police Department responded to the scene. Both vehicles — a silver Chevy Sonic and a white Toyota Prius — were removed from the scene by flatbed trucks.

A child was transported from the scene by an ambulance after being examined at the scene of the accident.

A black Kia Forte Koup was on the scene and dented, although its involvement in the accident is unclear. The intersection — which is a block away from Lehigh’s campus — was cleared by 5:45 p.m.

The Bethlehem Police Department was unable to offer additional information at this time.
