Indiana County man, 71, dies of injuries after crash
An Indiana County man who was seriously injured in a two-vehicle accident in White Township Wednesday died early Thursday in a Johnstown hospital.
Vernon Troup, 71, died about 1 a.m. in Conemaugh Memorial Hospital, where he was flown after a crash at 11:17 a.m. Wednesday along Warren Road at the intersection with McKnight Road, just outside Indiana Borough, according to the Cambria County Coroner's office.
State police in Indiana said Troup was stopped at a stop sign on McKnight Road and proceeded through when he struck an eastbound vehicle driven by Virginia Holmes, 88, also of Indiana.
Holmes was not injured. Police said Troup was ejected from his vehicle.
Troup initially was treated at Indiana Regional Medical Center and later was flown to the Cambria County hospital because of the extent of his injuries.

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.
