Four people were injured, three seriously, in a two-vehicle crash that occurred Monday morning on Route 322 in the Maple Shade area of Cranberry Township.

State Police say the collision occurred when a vehicle driven by 55 year-old Lester Smith, from Venus, pulled into the path of an S-U-V operated by 38 year-old Michelle Pratt, from Clarion.

Pratt and two teenage passengers, 15 year-old Stephanie Pratt and 16 year-old William Diamond, both from Clarion, were flown by helicopter to a regional hospital.  Smith received minor injuries.

Route 322 was closed near its intersection with Maple Shade Road for nearly an hour-and-a-half following the 10:35 AM crash.
