Women injured in traffic accident

NEW CASTLE — Two women were taken to hospitals when their vehicles collided Saturday afternoon in Union Township.

Township police said Sarah Marich, who was traveling north on Old Youngstown Road around 4:55 p.m., is believed to have run a stop sign at Route 422 and collided with a sport utility vehicle driven by Amy Bender. Bender was westbound on Route 422, police said.

Police said Marich was transported to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown and while Bender was taken to Jameson Hospital. Attempts Sunday to get conditions on both women were unsuccessful.

Police did not have addresses or ages for the women, but said both are from the Lawrence County area.

Earlier in the afternoon, state police investigated the rollover of a flatbed truck that was carrying a piece of heavy equipment on Route 224 near Route 551 in Edinburg.

According to police, the driver, who was eastbound on Route 224, took his eyes off the road to look at his GPS and struck a guardrail.

The truck then went down an embankment. Police said the driver, whose name was not provided, was treated at Jameson Hospital.
