Two people were taken to separate hospitals with minor injuries sustained in a three-vehicle accident along Route 22 in Monroeville.

The crash occurred around 11:52 a.m. Thursday along the westbound lanes between the No. 1 Cochran dealership and the Parkway West ramp.

Monroeville Police Chief Doug Cole said a Subaru sedan driven by a 41-year-old woman from Delmont struck the back of an Enterprise box truck, causing it to strike another sedan.

The Subaru driver and a passenger were not injured. The driver of the truck, a 53-year-old man from Fairchance, was transported to Forbes Regional Hospital with a leg injury.

The driver of the other sedan, a 60-year-old Penn Hills woman, was taken to UPMC East for evaluation.

The incident remains under investigation. Traffic was reduced to one lane around the scene.

Emergency crews began leaving the area 1:10 p.m. All three vehicles were towed away.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
