Lower Burrell man injured in Route 28 crash
A Lower Burrell man suffered serious injuries Saturday after his car went airborne and rolled over in a one-vehicle crash on Route 28 in Buffalo.
State police said David L. Umstott, 29, was traveling south on Route 28 around 3 a.m. when his car went off the side of the road, hit a culvert and a tree before going airborne. It rolled over numerous times, stopping upside-down off the road.
State police said Umstott was uncooperative and wanting to go to sleep. He was able to give his name and date of birth, but was unsure of how he crashed. He consented to a blood test before being taken to Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side by helicopter, where he is in serious condition, state police said.
Charges were pending blood test results, state police said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
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.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
