This Week in Chester History…

Four major car accidents occurred in the Chester Township area in 1961. In the first, five people were hurt when two cars collided on Ralston Road. Blowing snow blocked the vision of one driver who was then unable to see the oncoming car. Another car hit a telephone pole on Rt. 24, and a third driver lost control on North Road and was struck by a second car. The fourth accident occurred when a car struck a snow plow.
