2 women treated in separate crashes

Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011
 

Two women were treated at two Pittsburgh hospitals after separate one-car crashes Sunday in Sewickley and Unity townships.

State police in Greensburg said Deanne M. Smith 25, of West Newton was in fair condition at Allegheny General Hospital after a 10:30 p.m. accident along Herminie-West Newton Road, while Kayla M. Garland, 19, of Pleasant Unity was released after she was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital with multiple injuries after a 7:48 a.m. accident along state Route 2017 near Pleasant Unity.

Smith was traveling south when she was ejected from her 2007 Scion after her vehicle ran off the right side of the road and traveled up an embankment on the other side before hitting a small tree and flipping over on its roof.

Police said Smith was taken to Allegheny General Hospital by Sewickley Township Emergency Medical Services.

Garland was released earlier this week after she was treated for injuries suffered Sunday morning just north of Greensburg-Mt. Pleasant Road in Unity, police said.

State police said the crash occurred when Garland's 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the centerline, drove off the west berm and struck a tree. She was flown to the hospital from the scene.
