Drivers are cited in both incidents, police say.

Three people were injured in two recent motor vehicle accidents on Upper Milford Township roadways.

His car continued to spin and struck the porch of a home at 4710 Churchview Road.

Beltz received moderate injuries and was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest by Macungie Ambulance, police said. He was cited for driving at an unsafe speed.

In the other accident, this one on June 25, two Bethlehem residents were moderately hurt when their Honda Accord struck a utility pole and a tree, police said.
