MERCERSBURG, Pa. - A Mercersburg man was critically injured when his pickup truck burst into flames in a Monday crash on Pa. 16, Pennsylvania State Police said.
Elmer N. Windsor, 47, was pulled from the burning truck by three men who were passing through the area, police said in a news release.
Windsor was driving west on Pa. 16 (Buchanan Trail West) when the back of his GMC Sonoma swerved into oncoming traffic at about 4:30 p.m., about a quarter-mile west of Pa. 416 in Peters Township, police said. An eastbound Ford F-150 struck the Sonoma, causing it to catch fire and sending it spinning, police said.
Windsor was in critical condition Wednesday morning in the intensive care burn unit at Washington Hospital Center, a spokeswoman there said.
