COWANSHANNOCK — Four people were taken to local hospitals after a Dayton Fire Department ambulance crashed into the rear of a sport utility vehicle along Route 85 Monday afternoon.

Rural Valley Fire Department Chief Bill Rupert said the sport utility vehicle, driven by a female, was headed east and in the center turning lane, waiting to turn right towards Yatesboro, when the ambulance struck it from behind.

The ambulance came to rest several 100 feet from the crash site, while the sport utility vehicle came to rest in a dirt lot alongside the roadway.

Rupert said the two-person ambulance crew was transporting a patient home from Armstrong County Memorial Hospital when the crash occurred.

Fire officials could not provide further information on the people involved and state police were still investigating the crash Monday night.

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.
