NEW CASTLE — At least two people were hurt in a three-vehicle collision in Hickory Township Tuesday afternoon.

Two helicopters landed near the scene of the crash at the intersection of Route 388 and Eastbrook-Harlansburg Road.

The helicopters had to land on Route 388 because soft conditions in nearby fields prevented landing there.

Few details and no names were available in connection with the accident at press time. State police were investigating.

Scanner reports indicated a roof had to be cut off one of the vehicles to free a victim.
