February 24, 2011

FAIRFIELD, Pa. — A Gettysburg, Pa., man was in critical condition Thursday night at Meritus Medical Center after his 1995 Saturn became wedged between two tractor-trailers at the intersection of Main and North Miller streets in Fairfield on Wednesday, police said.

Eric M. Doyle, 30 was pulling from a stop sign onto Main Street at about 4:10 p.m. when he traveled into the path of a westbound 2000 Kenworth tractor-trailer being driven by Paul Hawbaker, 65, of Waynesboro, according to Patrolman Dustin Miller of the Carroll Valley Borough Police Department.

Hawbaker's truck collided with the driver's side of Doyle's car, which spun counter-clockwise and became wedged between that truck and an eastbound tractor-trailer being driven by Daniel Abraham, 61, of Orangeburg, S.C., Miller said.

Doyle was trapped in the wreckage and had to be cut free from the debris, Miller said.

Doyle was flown to Meritus Medical Center.

Hawbaker and Abraham were not injured, Miller said.
