June 22, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A Hagerstown woman was in satisfactory condition Monday in a York, Pa., hospital after a Saturday crash.

A pickup truck and a Saturn sport utility vehicle were involved in the crash on Molly Pitcher Highway, sending four people to two area hospitals, police said.

Pennsylvania State Police said two of the four people had "major" injuries and were flown to York Hospital.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 29-year-old Chambersburg, man, was flown to York. Police have not released his name, and his condition could not be learned.

A passenger in the Saturn, Misha E. Meyers, 54, of Hagerstown, also was flown to York. She was in satisfactory condition Monday, a nursing supervisor there said.


Saturn driver Robert H. Meyers, 55, and his daughter, Lauren N. Bond, 23, also of Hagerstown, were taken to Washington County Hospital.

A nursing supervisor said Sunday evening neither Robert Meyers nor Lauren Bond was a patient at Washington County Hospital.

The crash happened at about 1:45 p.m. Saturday, about 50 feet south of Miller Road.

Police said a 1996 GMC Sonoma was traveling south on Molly Pitcher Highway when the driver lost control and went off the road to the west, hitting a mailbox.

The Sonoma continued back across the road to the east and into the path of the northbound 2008 Saturn Vue, police said.

The Vue hit the passenger side of the Sonoma.
