Emergency crews work the scene of a crash on Monday, June 17, 2019, along Rt. 22 near its intersection with Quarry Drive in Salem Township.

Three people were transported to area hospitals following a head-on, two-car crash Monday afternoon on Route 22 in Salem.

A Westmoreland 911 supervisor said the crash happened around 5:15 p.m. along westbound Route 22, just east of its intersection with Route 819.

Forbes Road VFD Chief Bob Rosatti said a male patient was trapped in his vehicle after it flipped onto its roof following the crash. He was flown by helicopter to UPMC Presbyterian.

“We were able to land the helicopter in front of Colonial Park, near the 819 intersection,” Rosatti said.

Two patients who were in the second vehicle were transported from the scene by ambulance.

Witnesses gave conflicting reports about how the crash occurred, Rosatti said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
