A motorist who stopped to help a woman who had wrecked along Sugar Run Road was struck by a third vehicle that skidded on the wet roadway Tuesday evening, Allegheny Township police said.
Joshua Madison of Summerhill refused treatment and transportation at the scene of the two accidents that began when Joni Adams of Cresson lost control of her vehicle while traveling in the westbound lane on Sugar Run Road. The vehicle traveled down an embankment, hit a rock, flipped and came to rest on its wheels.
Adams was transported to Altoona Regional for injuries of an unknown severity, police said.
