North Hills driver hospitalized after head-on collision on Thompson Run Road
A head-on collision sent one person to the hospital and snarled traffic Monday afternoon in Ross Township, officials said.
Allegheny County 911 dispatchers received a report of a multi-vehicle crash near Thompson Run and White Oak roads shortly before 5 p.m., a shift commander said.
At least one person was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, the dispatcher said.
Initial reports indicated that the injured driver may have experienced a medical emergency, but Ross police chief Joseph A. Ley said about 9 p.m. that the incident appears to be alcohol-related.
Further details on what happened, possible charges and updates on the driver’s condition were not available.
“Injuries do not appear life-threatening at this time,” Ley said.
Two cars were traveling in opposite directions along Thompson Run Road when they collided, Ley said. It was not immediately clear how many occupants may have been in the two cars other than the drivers.
Traffic moved slowly on Thompson Run Road between Cherrington Drive and W. Sutter Road as officials examined the scene and cleared the wreckage.
Ross police are investigating.
