ROSTRAVER TOWNSHIP – A Charleroi couple remains hospitalized following a two-vehicle accident Sunday evening on Interstate 70 West just before the Speers Bridge.

Robert and Carol Cochran were traveling in the right lane when a Jeep driven by Jack Bridge Jr. of Belle Vernon struck their car, sending it into the cement barricade, according to state police.

Robert Cochran, 75, suffered a broken neck, hand injuries and a concussion, while Carol Cochran, 65, suffered a concussion and contusions to the head, according to their son, Chris Cochran of Scottdale.

Both remain in UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Chris Cochran said.
