Greensburg man remains hospitalized after crash

Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, 5:45 p.m.
 

A 76-year-old Greensburg man was still recuperating Friday from injuries suffered Wednesday when his car went out of control and crashed along Route 66 in Salem.

Harry Kaczmarek Jr. was admitted to Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg for treatment following the crash that occurred shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday on the entrance ramp to Route 66 north at Route 22. His wife, Georgianna, 70, also was treated at the hospital and released, police said.

State Police Trooper Charles Pravlik reported Kaczmarek was entering the highway when he suffered a “severe medical condition” causing him to lose control of his 2012 Chevrolet Impala.

Police said Kacmarek drove off the east berm, climbed an embankment, sideswiped a tree, hit a light pole, then crossed three lanes of traffic before hitting a concrete barrier.

Kaczmarek's condition was not released.
