“A 2006 Kia Sorento was traveling north on Route 15 when it lost control, crossed the centerline and struck a southbound 2006 Nissan Maxima. The impact caused the Nissan to run off the east side of the highway and overturn over an embankment. Meanwhile, the Kia continued north on Route 15 where it struck a southbound 1995 Acura Legend. The Kia and Acura ran off opposite sides of Route 15 and came to rest there,” she said.

Wesley J. Davenport, of Buckingham, the driver of the Sorento, was charged with driving too fast for highway and traffic conditions “due to the slick conditions at the time of the crash,” Geller said.

All reported injuries were minor, she said.
