Cal U students injured in crash

| Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2006

CALIFORNIA -- Four persons, at least three of whom are California University of Pennsylvania students, were seriously injured when the car they were riding in overturned along the Mon-Fayette Expressway early this morning.

Joseph Hays, 20, of Brownsville, Steven Shiner, 20, of Uniontown, and Darcie Yeager, 20, of Hadley, all suffered serious injuries in the accident.

A fourth occupant in the vehicle, whom police had not yet identified early this morning, also was apparently injured in the accident, police said.

A spokesman for California University of Pennsylvania confirmed that the three are students.

The accident occurred at milepost 33.3 of the expressway in California, state police at the New Stanton Barracks reported.

Police reported that a 2000 Pontiac Trans Am left the roadway off the west berm, traveled approximately 150 feet and rolled over several times before coming to rest on its roof.

Police reported they do not yet know who was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.

No additional details were available.
