2 Latrobe residents hurt in Indiana County crash
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.
