Whenever multiple cars are involved in a motor vehicle accident, serious devastation is sure to follow, especially when one of those vehicles is a tractor-trailer. A three-vehicle crash between a car, pickup, and semi resulted in the death of one person and the injury of four others this morning in Adams Township. The Route 219 crash occurred around 12:20 a.m. just past the Galleria exit. 20-year-old Olivia C. Red of Indiana County was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.
According to authorities, Red was the driver of the car, and exactly how the crash happened is still under investigation. All five victims were taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center for their injuries. Apparently, Red and her passenger were heading home from work when the early morning trucking accident occurred. Reds’ passenger suffered a serious leg injury. The names and the specific conditions of the other victims is not available at this time.
When multiple vehicles collide, specifically when they include a tractor-trailer, there is certain to be some amount of serious injuries and damage. In this case, a young woman sadly lost her life while four others currently suffer from minor to even catastrophic injuries. All northbound lanes of Route 219 were reopened around 2 p.m.
