Woman hurt when SUV overturns in 2-vehicle crash on Route 30 in Unity

Firefighters had to cut off the roof of an overturned sport utility vehicle Thursday afternoon to free the woman who was trapped after her SUV collided with another vehicle along Route 30 at a Unity furniture store, fire officials said.

The woman, whose identity was not released, was transported to Forbes Hospital in Monroeville, state police Trooper Tristan Tappe said.

The woman was driving the Ford Escape eastbound on Route 30 when it collided with another eastbound SUV at about 5:40 p.m.

The Ford Escape came to rest with the driver’s side of the vehicle on the pavement of the parking lot of the Lazor Furniture store, which sits between the eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway. The other vehicle was off to the side of the eastbound lanes, which freed one lane of the eastbound traffic to proceed along the busy highway.

The woman was talking when firefighters went to extract her from the vehicle, said David Smith, assistant chief of the Youngstown Fire Department.

Occupants of the other SUV, which was damaged on the driver’s door, sustained cuts and abrasions and were transported to a hospital, Smith said.

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.
