IN BRIEF | Woman pinned between equipment

— An Addison Township woman was hurt Sunday afternoon after she was pinned between a loaded hay wagon and a truck, responders said.

Salisbury Deputy Fire Chief Dave Short said the woman apparently was helping her husband, who had brought a load of mulch onto their Wable Drive property. The wagon drifted backward, pressing her against the truck.

Family members were able to move the vehicle and free her before crews arrived. The woman was treated at the scene until a medical helicopter arrived.

It appeared she received severe chest injuries, Short said, saying she was taken to a hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., for treatment.

Addison fire and EMS units from Confluence, Markleysburg and Salisbury responded.

Driver injured in Route 281 crash

A Central City woman received significant injuries in a Route 281 crash Friday in Somerset Township, police said.

Police said Robin L. Roberts, 46, was a passenger in a Ford pickup that was heading north when it struck a deer.

Roberts was taken to Somerset Hospital for treatment, police said.

The driver, Galen P. Roberts, 63, of Central City, was not hurt.

STOYSTOWN – A pickup struck a tractor trailer on

Route 281 near the highway’s Route 30 intersection Thursday morning, but no significant injuries were reported, Stoystown fire officials said.

The accident was under investigation last week by state police in Somerset. But Stoystown fire Chief David Johnson said the wreck appeared to have occurred after the pickup’s driver, for an unknown reason, drifted across the center line into the southbound trailer’s path, striking the front end.

The tractor trailer’s driver was not injured.

The motorist in the pickup refused treatment at the scene, Johnson said.

He said the accident forced crews to reduce the highway to one lane for nearly an hour until the crash scene was cleared.
