A Darlington man remains in critical condition following an accident that claimed three lives last week. Larry Davis, 60, suffered lung damage and other injuries in the Oct. 8 collision in Mahoning Township. He was flown to St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown, from the scene. Davis was a passenger in a truck driven by his wife, Dorothy, who was treated for injuries at Jameson Hospital and released. Her pickup truck hit a car broadside that was driven by Heather Vestal, 19, of Greenville. The accident occurred around 2 p.m. at Sky Hill Road and Route 551. Vestal also was flown to St. Elizabeth, where her condition has improved to fair, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday morning. Northwest Lawrence Regional Police determined Vestal, who was westbound, had gone through the stop sign on Sky Hill Road without stopping. Two of her passengers -- her cousin, Dennis Vestal, 19, of Hubbard, Ohio, and a friend, 22-year-old Jesse Hoover of Girard, Ohio -- were dead at the scene. The third passenger, 18-year-old Danielle Kennedy, who Northwest Lawrence Regional Police learned was Heather Vestal's best friend, died Tuesday in Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. The group had picked up Kennedy at her State Street home near Edinburg only minutes before the collision. They were en route to a backyard wrestling match in Canfield, Ohio, when Vestal's car crossed the path of the Davis truck, according to police. Funerals for Dennis Vestal and Hoover were last week. There will be a celebration of Danielle's life from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at the St. Lawrence Church Parish Center in Hillsville.
