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.
