An East Pittsburgh man was arrested Friday after police said he fled from a head-on crash in Plum.

The crash happened just before 10 a.m. along New Texas Road.

Police said a car driven by Sean Tally, 20, crashed into an oncoming vehicle containing an Upper Burrell couple, ages 50 and 48. The couple’s vehicle partially flipped and trapped them inside, according to police. They were taken to Forbes Hospital in Monroeville, but the nature or severity of their injuries was not known, according to police.

Tally and a passenger in his car, identified as Tyrone McClain Jr., 21, of Greensburg, fled the scene after the crash, police said.

They abandoned the car during a pursuit, but were apprehended with the help of Penn Hills police, a police dog and Plum EMS staff, Plum police said.

Plum police said they suspected Tally of driving while intoxicated and he underwent a blood test at a hospital. His passenger, McClain, also was taken to a hospital to be evaluated, police said.

Tally was scheduled to be arraigned at Pittsburgh Night Court.

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.
