SUSQUEHANNA TOWNSHIP — A Harrisburg woman and her 3-year-old passenger were injured in a two-car crash involving a PennDOT vehicle Monday morning in Susquehanna Township, according to State Police.
The accident occurred at 9:33 a.m. at the northbound ramp from US 22 to Interstate 81 North, police say.
According to police, the PennDOT vehicle, a 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck, was stopped at the left side of the ramp attending to another disabled vehicle when a 2007 Nissan Altama, driven by Leamsy S.

Gonzalez was charged with driving at an unsafe speed, according to police.
