Three people were hurt in a crash that closed Route 219 between Mountain Laurel and Rocky Top roads south of Ridgway today.

Police say at just after 11 a.m. a car driven by 24-year-old Robyn Scharf of Kersey crossed the center line and into the path of a Freightliner that was carrying a load of coal. The truck went out of control, rolled onto its side and spilled the coal. The top portion of the truck’s dump bed hit a car driven by 55-year-old Christine Moore of Ridgway.

62-year-old Richard Bussard of Reynoldsville was driving the truck. He and the women were taken to Elk Regional Health Center for treatment of moderate injuries.
