Two people were seriously injured in a head-on collision on Tuesday morning on Lovedale Road near Mill Hill Road in Elizabeth Township.

Police Chief Robert McNeilly said a woman was driving downhill on Lovedale around 9:15 a.m. when her vehicle crossed the center line and crashed directly into the front of an oncoming vehicle being driven up the hill by a man. The drivers' names were not available. No passengers were inside either vehicle.

The woman was taken by ambulance to UPMC Mercy and the man was flown to UPMC Presbyterian.

McNeilly said Allegheny County police accident investigations unit was on the scene because of the unknown severity of the man's injuries.

A portion of Lovedale Road was closed for several hours as investigators worked, and traffic was diverted up Mill Hill Road onto Route 48.
