A two-car accident in Derry Township left three people injured this evening and shut down part of Route 982, a Westmoreland County dispatch supervisor said.

The accident occurred at around 6 p.m. on Hillview Avenue/Route 982 near Chappell Road. One vehicle was reported to be on fire with a person trapped inside. The accident closed Route 982 near Industrial Boulevard.

The dispatch supervisor did not know the extent of the passengers' injuries, but medics requested a helicopter to transport at least one patient. The helicopters, however, were grounded by the weather, and all three were transported to area hospitals in ambulances.
