GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Four people were injured Monday morning in a four-vehicle collision that closed Pa. 16 west of Greencastle for several hours, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Police said the truck Shives was driving also hit the pickup, driven by Dale Hammond, 34, of Shade Gap, Pa., forcing it into the eastbound lane where it collided head-on with a 1995 Chevy truck driven by Martin Rosenberry. The police report did not give Rosenberry's age or address.

Hammond and his passenger, Raymond Horne, 53, address unavailable, were both taken to Washington County Hospital, police said. A hospital spokeswoman said a patient whose name the hospital had as Horn, was admitted and in fair condition.
