PHILADELPHIA — Miss America Marjorie Judith Vincent was frightened but not seriously injured when the van she was riding in hit a disabled tractor-trailer, authorities said.
Vincent had given a speech at St. Joseph's University and was being driven to an airport when the accident happened Tuesday on U.S. 76. She was examined at a hospital and released with a bandage on her knee, said university spokesman Joseph Lunardi.
Her traveling companion, a university driver and two students also were examined at the hospital and released. Vincent and the others were "more shaken than injured," Lunardi said.
