MANOR -- Three people were injured in a head-on collision along Route 66 on Thursday evening.

State police said a Volkswagen Golf, driven by William K. Demyan, 16, of Ford City, struck a Chevrolet Blazer, driven by Bruce R. Boyd, 50, of Leechburg, as Demyan was turning left from Route 66 onto Huston Road at 7:35 p.m.

Police said Demyan, and his passenger, William R. Demyan, 53, of Ford City, were not injured. The driver was cited for failing to yield.

Boyd also escaped injury, but his passengers, Jane M. Johnston, 42, an 8-year-old male and a 6-year-old female, all of Leechburg, suffered minor injuries and were taken by Ford City Ambulance personnel to ACMH Hospital for treatment.

Police said everyone was wearing seat belts, or were in proper child seats, at the time of the crash.

Fire Crews from Manor Township, Ford City and Ford Cliff remained on scene for about an hour while the vehicles were removed.
