A Harrison woman was in fair condition in a Pittsburgh hospital following a two-car crash Wednesday morning on Freeport Road in East Deer. Emergency crews had to free Rachelle Lingafelter, 32, of Walnut Street, Harrison, from her Kia Forte at about 10:30 a.m. She was taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh. Police said the other driver, Miranda Delancey, 39, of Alter Road, Harrison, and her infant son, were taken to Allegheny Valley Hospital, Harrison. Delancey was treated and released. No information was available for her son. East Deer police Chief John Manchini said the car was heading toward Tarentum and Delancey’s Chevrolet Trailblazer was heading toward Pittsburgh. For some reason, the front of the car struck the driver's side of the SUV, police said. The car and SUV each wound up facing the opposite direction from which they were before the crash, police said. The smashed-up SUV wound up in the side of a lot for Randy's Auto Repair shop. The heavily damaged Kia was in the right, southbound lane of Freeport Road. Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014.

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.
