JACKSON TWP. — A woman and her daughter were injured in a three-vehicle crash when their car struck the back of a Jeep on the on ramp to Interstate 79 southbound at Lindsay Road around 11 a.m. Friday, police said.

The daughter was trapped in the vehicle and was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, said state Trooper Mohamed Miloua of Pennsylvania State Police Troop D.

“The mother was driving the car, and she is the one who struck the car in front of her, and that car struck another car,” Miloua said. “Everybody is OK. The mom is a little bit injured and shook, and the daughter is also injured.”

The car and Jeep were towed from the road. Damage on the other vehicle appeared to be mostly to the back bumper.

John Hoden, the driver of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, said his car was badly damaged.

“She hit the back of it, and they had to tow it away,” he said. “She couldn't get it to stop, I guess.”

Christopher Labissiere, who was in the third car, said that Hoden's car hit the back of the car he was in.

“He hit us because the white car hit him,” he said. “The bumper and the back (were damaged).”
