1 airlifted to hospital after Richland crash

Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, 9:39 a.m.

An emergency medical helicopter descended on Richland this morning after a single-vehicle crash left one person injured, according to an Allegheny County dispatch supervisor.

The vehicle hit a utility pole in the 5300 block of Ranalli Drive, near the North Park Clubhouse, about 8:15 a.m., police said. The unidentified person was flown to a trauma center nearby.

County officials urged caution if traveling through the area. Crews will be on site later in the day to repair wires pulled from a transformer pole during the crash.
