A Pittsburgh man remained hospitalized in serious condition Monday after a crash over the weekend on Route 22.

George J. Blackham IV, 47, slid at the intersection with Lintner Road as he was traveling west about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, according to state police at Ebensburg.

Dale McAdams, 47, of Black Lick was making a left turn through the intersection eastbound when Blackham lost control, according to the release.

The driver's side of Blackham's car struck the passenger side of McAdams' vehicle, police said.

McAdams, who had to be extricated from the vehicle and had minor injuries, was taken to Indiana Regional Medical Center in White for treatment, according to the release.

Blackham had major injuries “to his lower torso” and was taken to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, police said.

His 15-year-old son, who was a passenger, had minor injuries.
