North Versailles – Another accident took place in North Versailles that left two people injured one Tuesday morning.

According to authorities on the scene, the mishap occurred at the corner of Westinghouse Rd. and 5th Ave. at about 7:45 o’clock in the morning.

It was a two-vehicle accident as two were involved in the crash sending two people injured to the hospital.

According to firefighters, the operator of a station wagon attempted to negotiate a turn and hit another car. The driver sustained life-threatening injuries as he was

The woman driver in the other vehicle sustained injuries as she complained of neck pain; she was also transported to a local hospital.

Every moment of the two-car crash was all recorded by a security camera. The device was able to capture the instant of a two-car crash that occurred thatTuesday morning at a busy corner of North Versailles.

The camera installed by the Court Pest Control was able to catch the entire episode of the crash from the moment of impact when one car attempted to negotiate a left turn into Westinghouse Ave. and then was hit by an approaching car from Fifth Avenue.

Due to the mishap, traffic was closed for more than two hours that caused lots of frustrations from commuters passing the busy intersection.

Douglas Reilly from Court Pest Control said that lots of drivers were impatience as traffic was closed in the area. The accident was a good lesson that drivers making a left turn, cutting in front of the cars coming down, or just being impatient are contributory to a car crash.

One driver of the collided vehicle was airlifted by ambulance helicopter to the General Hospital of Allegheny while the other driver was taken by ambulance to Presbyterian UPMC. There is no data about their present condition as investigation is ongoing.

First of all, authorities wanted to find out what cause the crash. They have interviewed witnesses who were able to see the whole happening. They are also going to find out the factor causing the crash. If the factor was alcohol or prescribed drugs, they have the BAC test for each driver to take. They are also looking at the weather, the condition of the road, the condition of the driver, the machine of the vehicle and others.

The result will give them evidences to file charges against the driver responsible for the crash.

North Versailles Township is only about 8 square miles consisting primarily of residential homes located about 12 miles SE of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. It is just a few minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh, the Municipality of Monroeville, and many shopping centers & plenty of entertaining activities.

Like any thriving communities in Pittsburgh, there are accidents happening from time to time causing injuries and even death.
