At least 2 hurt in North Versailles Township collision
At least two people were injured on Wednesday afternoon when a small school bus collided with a car near the entrance of the Giant Eagle in North Versailles Township.
North Versailles police said the Pennsylvania Coach Lines bus was traveling west along Lincoln Highway and the car was coming from the opposite direction when the driver of the car attempted to turn left across traffic onto Luehm Avenue.
Fire Department of North Versailles Chief Mike Volpe said the bus struck the passenger side of the car and a woman in the passenger seat had to be extricated.
“We used a spreader to gain access to her,” Volpe said. “We turned her over to White Oak EMS, and they already had two other people in the ambulance upon our arrival.”
North Versailles police Officer David Reiche said both people in the car and an aide riding the bus were taken to a hospital. The bus driver was not injured.
A representative on the scene for Pennsylvania Coach Lines had no comment.

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.
