People in both vehicles received minor injuries but traffic on Highway 20 at Pleasant Valley was slowed for about one hour.
Then Wednesday afternoon at 4:20 a serviceman was running  calls with his service truck and he stopped on the side of Highway 174 to see if he could get up the driveway to his next call.

Luckily no one was injured.  Officer Tassoni says it is a violation to leave your vehicle running and not set the parking brake or disable the transmission.
