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.

Bridge was treated Sunday at Monongahela Valley Hospital in Carroll Township and released, according to hospital director of communications Corinne Laboon.
