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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
