April 4, 2019

DICKSON CITY — An chain reaction of events in the borough Thursday sent two people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The incident at 542 Boulevard Ave. unfolded about 11:08 a.m. as a woman attempted to put her granddaughter into a car seat. Another woman parked nearby was getting out to help when the woman struggling with the car seat lost her balance and fell, borough police said. In the moment, the woman trying to assist the grandmother who fell forgot to put her own vehicle in park. The car then rolled back and knocked her over, Officer Michael Fredericks said. Both women were transported to Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, he said. — JEFF HORVATH
