NEW CASTLE — A New Castle resident is in critical condition in St. Elizabeth Health Center after three cars collided in Hickory Township.

Pennsylvania state police said Joshua M. Klien of 3940 Hollow Road was flown from the scene to the Youngstown hospital Tuesday afternoon.

According to police, Klien was northbound on Route 388 near the intersection with Eastbrook-Harlansburg Road about 3:15 p.m. when he apparently lost control of his vehicle.

Police said the front of Klien’s vehicle hit the front of a vehicle driven by Cynthia R. Wiseman of 361 McCaslin Road. Police said Klien’s vehicle then traveled another 300 feet and the back of his vehicle struck the front of a vehicle driven by David L. Ward of 675 Patton Road.

No other injuries were reported by state police, who are continuing the investigation.

Police were assisted at the scene by the Hickory Township Volunteer Fire Department.
