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.
