Firefighters with Youngwood Volunteer Fire Department work to remove wooden braces used to secure a vehicle that landed on its roof in a multiple vehicle-accident along Route 119 near Route 66 on Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014.

Three people were injured in a three-vehicle crash Wednesday morning on Route 119 in Youngwood.

Traffic was stopped on Route 119 northbound because of construction when a van rear-ended a sport utility vehicle shortly before 11 a.m. The van flipped over, and its two occupants were injured, according to the Youngwood Volunteer Fire Department.

Marjorie Haines, 79, of Washington, Pa., was driving the van. David Haines, 83, was in the passenger seat. Both were taken to Forbes Hospital in Monroeville, state police said.

The SUV, driven by Lawrence Bagg Sr., 56, of West Elizabeth, was pushed into the DirecTV van in front of it. Lawrence Bagg Jr., 35, and Valerie Franklin, 31, both of West Elizabeth, were passengers.

Franklin was injured and was taken to Jefferson Hospital in Pleasant Hills, police said.

The van driver, Chad Sirianni, 26, of Ruffsdale was not injured.

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.
