NORTH VERSAILLES (KDKA) — Four people, including a child, were injured in a two-vehicle crash on East Pittsburgh McKeesport Boulevard in North Versailles on Monday.
Police tell KDKA’s Kym Gable that a man was headed south on a winding stretch of the road when he crossed the center line and slammed into a car with a family of three inside.
All of them were injured, including a young child, but they are expected to survive, along with the driver of the other car.
The twisted wreckage tells a tale of just how intense the collision was.
“Oh, it looked like someone was seriously hurt by the looks of this car. I mean, ’cause as I went down, this is the first car you see and then you see the other one off to the side of the road,” Chuck Elnyczky, with Allmor Towing, said.
The impact of the crash was so violent that the engine from one of the vehicles ended up in the driver’s seat.
“They go down there so fast, and when they get down at the bend, they don’t realize it’s a bend ’til it’s too late,” Elnyczky said.
Elnyczky said he’s seen a lot accidents in that area.
“Right there in that particular intersection, we get a lot of them because they fly up and down this road. They don’t slow down,” he said.
