Two children among five hurt in Pine accident

PINE — A head-on collision occurred at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday (9-2-10) on Route 208 west of Grove City, just east of Hodil Road in Pine Township.

According to a report issued by state police, the collision occurred when an eastbound vehicle driven by Shirley L. Walter, 63, drifted left of the centerline into the westbound lane and struck a westbound vehicle driven by Nicole M. Hey, 22. It is unknown if Walters was wearing a seatbelt.

Walters was reportedly taken by Life Flight to St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Youngstown, with unknown injuries. However, according to a spokesperson at St. Elizabeth’s, the hospital has no record of Walter being admitted or treated in the emergency room.

Hey, who was wearing a seatbelt, was taken to Grove City Medical Center with severe injuries. A passenger in the front seat of Hey’s vehicle, Jeremy Dora, 25, was flown to St. Elizabeth. It is unknown if he was wearing a seatbelt. According both hospitals, Hey and Dora were treated and released.

Three children were in the back seat of Hey’s vehicle in child restraints. A girl riding in a carseat in the right rear was flown to St. Elizabeth with unknown injuries. The left rear passenger Ð a boy who was also in a car seat Ð was treated at GCMC for moderate injuries. A young girl in a booster seat in the middle backseat was uninjured. The children’s ages were not released and the hospitals were unable to confirm treatment.

Walters was driving a 2000 Oldsmobile sedan and Hey was driving a 1997 Toyota sedan. Both vehicles sustained severe front end damage and airbags deployed in both cars.

State troopers were assisted at the scene by Pine Township Engine Company, Grove City Fire Department, Grove City Police Department and Superior Ambulance Service.
