Two Westmoreland County residents were taken to a Pittsburgh hospital for injuries they sustained in a Sunday crash on Route 22 in Indiana County, according to state police.

The 2:30 p.m. crash in Burrell Township happened when a tractor-trailer was disabled in the left center turning lane of eastbound traffic near Corporate Campus Drive. Wayne E. Saxman, 67, of Latrobe, lost control of his Ford Crown Victoria, crossed over the median and hit a westbound Volkswagen CC head-on, police said.

The Volkswagen, driven by Nathan A. Adamson, 34, of Homer City, collided with the tractor-trailer and became lodged partially underneath it.

Saxman and his passenger Melanie McInnes, 60, of Latrobe, were taken to Allegheny General Hospital.

Adamson had suspected minor injuries and was not hospitalized, police said. One person inside the tractor-trailer — Elo D. Strudwick, 41, of Burlington, N.C. — was not injured. Brenda F. Galban, 61, of Burlington, N.C., who troopers said was a pedestrian, sustained minor injuries and was taken to Indiana Hospital.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
