Two people were reported injured Tuesday in a head-on collision that closed Donohoe Road in Unity Township for more than one hour.

The collision was reported at 9:18 a.m. along the 800 block of Donohoe Road, according to a Westmoreland County dispatch supervisor.

The two drivers were transported by Mutual Aid ambulances to Excela Health Westmoreland hospital in Greensburg, according to firefighters at the scene.

“Both drivers had self-extricated when we arrived and were taken to the hospital in separate ambulances,” said Lloydsville Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Jim Jellison.

In addition to Lloydsville, volunteer firefighters from Bovard and Crabtree responded.

The road remained closed for about an hour after the crash while firefighters waited for tow trucks and cleared the wreckage off the roadway.

State police in Greensburg were investigating, but no further information, including the identity of the drivers, was currently available.

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.
