Driver cited for accident that left couple in Hempfield culvert

Tuesday, March 5, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

A Jeannette man was charged by state police with failure to obey a stop sign in connection with a crash Saturday afternoon that left a Greensburg couple temporarily trapped inside their vehicle in a culvert carrying a tributary of Brush Creek under Pleasant Valley Road.

Police said Charles Leseman, 64, pulled onto Pleasant Valley Road from Kentwood Drive, traveling south, and struck the passenger side of a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by Nada Nicoletti, 85.

The Cobalt veered off the north shoulder of Pleasant Valley Road and became wedged in the culvert in Hempfield, near Greensburg Country Club. Nicoletti and her passenger, Guy Nicoletti, 84, were transported by Mutual Aid Ambulance to Excela Health Westmoreland for treatment of what police called moderate injuries.

North Hempfield Volunteer Fire Department extricated the Nicolettis from the vehicle.
