Ephrata Township crash injures five
A three-vehicle accident in Ephrata Township injured five people Monday night, according to police.
Frieda Schmidt, public relations manager at Lancaster General Health, said Tuesday that Reuben Weaver III, 62, of Ephrata was in critical condition and Roseann Martin, 29, of Newmanstown was in serious condition from the accident that occurred at 7:10 p.m. at Schoeneck and Springville roads. Schmidt said that Inderpal Kaur, 28, of Ephrata was treated and released.
The names of two passengers were not released by Ephrata Police, so the hospital could not report on their conditions.
Police said a vehicle driven by Kaur pulled from a stop sign westbound on Springville Road and struck a pickup truck being driven north on Schoeneck Road by Martin.
The collision sent Martin’s truck into the southbound lane of Schoeneck Road where it struck a car driven by Weaver.
Weaver and Martin were both entrapped and sustained serious injuries.
All three drivers, and two passengers in Martin’s truck, were taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment.
