    Channel 11's Courtney Brennan learned that a woman driving a red truck told police that she lost her brakes as she was going down a hill and through a four-way intersection.

    The woman told officers that she zigzagged her way through two lanes of traffic at the Racetrack Road intersection and collided with two parked cars in a doctor's office parking lot.

    “She did manage to avoid traffic somehow. I'm not quite certain how that worked out. Generally, it's a high-volume traffic area,” South Strabane Police Officer Steven McWreath said.

    Brennan reported that a 10-year-old and an adult were taken to an area hospital, and a 90-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the truck, was airlifted from the scene to UMPC Presbyterian Hospital.

    Their names and conditions were not released. 

    Authorities are continuing to investigate the accident.
