2 injured in accident in Summit Township
Three people were seriously injured Thursday in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Bonniebrook and Portman roads.
State police identified the injured as Caleb Cole, 21, of Saxonburg and Brison Freehling, 20, and Missy Marie Emerick, 19, both of the Saxonburg area.
All three were flown to Pittsburgh hospitals. A spokesman at UPMC Presbyterian hospital said that Cole, who was driving the vehicle carrying the other two, was in critical condition Thursday night.
Freehling and Emerick were both flown to Allegheny General Hospital. A spokesman said Freehling was in serious condition and Emerick was in critical condition.
According to state police, Cole’s 1993 Toyota van was traveling east on Portman and approaching the intersection with Bonniebrook Road.
Meanwhile, a 2003 Ford truck driven by Jefferson Grubs, 33, of Sarver was traveling north on Bonniebrook.
Police said Cole failed to stop at a stop sign and was hit by Grubs’ truck as it traveled across Bonniebrook.
Both vehicles went off the road, and Cole’s van rolled over before coming to rest on its wheels.
Police said the accident investigation is continuing.
