Woman cut from car after Washington Township wreck
A Washington Township woman was injured early Thursday when another driver pulled from a side road onto Route 380 in front of her, police said.
Kimberly Farrington, 47, was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, Pittsburgh, after the 8:40 a.m. accident. Township police said Donald E. Bowman, 84, of Washington Township, pulled his 1999 Dodge Durango from Beamer Lane onto Route 380 where it collided with a 2013 Dodge Avenger driven by Farrington.
Farrington was trapped about 25 minutes, township police Sgt. Jason Montgomery said, with firefighters cutting the roof off of her vehicle to extricate her. There was no information available regarding Farrington's condition early this afternoon.
Montgomery said Bowman sustained an arm injury and was treated and released from Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville.

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.
