Lower Burrell Police Sgt. Zach Beam investigates the scene of an overturned vehicle Friday along the 2600 block of Seventh Street Road in Lower Burrell. Police said Susan Eckman, 65, of New Kensington was driving the vehicle when she suffered a medical emergency. The car swerved off the road, ran over multiple bags of garbage awaiting pickup, struck a gas meter on a house, and careened 30 feet over an embankment. Eckman was taken to Allegheny Valley Hospital in Harrison, where she was reported to be in stable condition.

Pleasant and UPS, join hundreds of volunteers work to plant thousands of seedlings at the Flight 93 National Park — Plant a Tree for Flight 93 — during National Park Week. The volunteers will nearly double the efforts begun at the park four years ago. Park officials said the trees planted on 32 acres this year will begin the development of the Tower of Voices site, in accordance with the architect landscape plan. The reforestation effort eventually will result in 150,000 new trees at the memorial for the passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11.

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.
