First responders evaluate the scene after a medical van rear-ended a minivan in Hempfield Wednesday, July 10, 2019.

There were no serious injuries when a Mutual Aid medical transport van rear-ended a minivan in Hempfield, according to firefighters at the scene.

The crash, which occurred at the corner of Route 66 Business and Franconia Road, happened shortly after 5 p.m.

Both vans were traveling south.

The mutual aid van was transporting a man home after a doctor’s appointment, according to North Hempfield firefighter Bob Laskey.

The man recently had back surgery. He was taken to Excela Westmoreland Hospital to be evaluated, Laskey said.

Firefighters redirected northbound traffic off of Route 66 Business.

State police, North Hempfield Fire Department and Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department Hose Company No. 1 responded.

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.
