A total of 6 people were injured, but state police tell Channel 11's Melanie Marsalko that no one was killed. Three of the people who were hurt use wheelchairs.

“Unfortunately they were all in wheelchairs and the wheelchair lift in the van was damaged in the crash so we got them out thru back door and transported all patients to local hospitals," said Chief Bob Rosatti of Forbes Road Fire Department.

Route 22 is back open.
