2 men suffer non-life-threatening injuries in 2-car collision in Springdale Township
Two men suffered non-life-threatening injuries when their cars collided Monday in Springdale Township, Allegheny Valley Regional police Chief Mike Naviglia said.
The crash involving a gray Ford and a white Volkswagen occurred about 5:10 p.m. in the 2800 block of Freeport Road near John & Gerry’s Fruit Market.
Both men had to be cut from their cars and were taken to hospitals by paramedics, Naviglia said. The driver of the Volkswagen was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh’s North Side. The man driving the Ford was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland.
Naviglia declined to provide their names.
Naviglia said the collision occurred when the southbound Ford crossed the center lines, striking an oncoming Volkswagen.
The driver’s side of the Ford struck the driver’s side of the Volkswagen, the chief said. Both cars were totaled.
Naviglia said the driver of the Volkswagen has since been released from the hospital. He didn’t have an update on the condition of the man driving the Ford as of Tuesday afternoon.
Naviglia said another man was a passenger in the Ford. He was able to get himself out of the car. The man driving the Volkswagen was the only occupant in that car, Naviglia said.
Emergency responders rerouted traffic around the scene, which was cleared shortly after 6 p.m.
