Couple injured in Pa. crash



FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police said an Adams County, Pa., couple was flown by Life Lion helicopter to Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center after a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon on U.S. 30 in Greene Township.

John Roland Hoffman, 42, and Octavia L. Hoffman, 46, both of 295 Poplar Springs Road, Orrtanna, were both in critical condition Sunday evening, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

The accident happened at 12:55 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 30 and and Fayetteville's Main Street. A 1991 Ford Explorer driven by Connie Rhae Harris, 42, of 2620 Kellar Road, St. Thomas, Pa., pulled from Main Street into the path of the westbound 1990 Chrysler LeBaron driven by John Hoffman.

The Hoffman's vehicle struck the driver's side of the Explorer and crossed the eastbound lane of U.S. 30 before running off the south side of the road, police said. The Hoffmans were not wearing seatbelts and both had severe internal injuries, according to the report.
