Men trapped in minivan after accident
Two men were taken to a Pittsburgh-area hospital Thursday following a one-car accident in Penn Township in which both patients were trapped inside the wreckage.
Claridge Fire Chief Bobby Bankosh said firefighters worked to free two men — one of then physically handicapped — from inside a minivan that went over a hillside along Dutch Hollow Road at about 7:30 p.m.
“Once we got here our guys were right to work,” Bankosh said. “They did a great job getting those two guys out.”
The identities and conditions of the two men were not available last night, but Bankosh said their injuries did not appear life-threatening.
Bankosh said volunteers from Claridge, Harrison City and White Valley responded, along with Penn Township Police and Penn Township Ambulance Service.
