A woman was flown to a Johnstown hospital after a two-vehicle accident in Ligonier Thursday afternoon.

According to Rob Beaufort, chief of the Waterford Fire Department, the vehicles were involved in a head-on collision on Kissell Springs Road.

Westmoreland County 911 said the call about the accident came in at 4:27 p.m.

Beaufort said a "young female" who was driving one of the vehicles was taken by medical helicopter to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown.

"When she got in the helicopter she was conscious," Beaufort said.

The woman driving the other vehicle was not injured, Beaufort said. They were the only two people involved in the accident.

Firefighters from Wilpen joined Waterford at the scene.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
