Infant suffers head injuries in Indiana County crash
A 1-year-old boy was airlifted to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for head injuries sustained in a two-car crash on Route 422 in Indiana County Wednesday evening.
According to state police, the crash occurred at about 7:45 p.m. in Armstrong when James E. Farabajgh, 36, of Northern Cambria was westbound and failed to stop for or avoid a car that was stopped while preparing to take a left turn.
Farabajgh rear-ended the stopped car, according to the police report, which was being driven by Steven Marsh, 26, of Indiana. The baby was a passenger in Marsh's car, as was Robert L. Gibbons, 24, of Indiana.
Marsh and Gibbons were not injured. Farabajgh was taken to Indiana Regional Medical Center in White for minor injuries. The baby was transported by Lifeflight with injuries described as “moderate.” The boy's condition was not known late Wednesday.

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.
