A Carlisle woman was flown out with serious injuries and two other drivers were taken to the hospital for treatment after a three-vehicle crash on Route 30 in Straban Township Monday afternoon, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Michelle Smith, of Fairfield, was traveling west in a car just east of Flickinger Road around 1:30 p.m. when she drifted into the eastbound lane and struck a car driven by Kim Nowak, of Carlisle, according to a police press release. A car traveling east, driven by Dennis Murphy, of Gettysburg, then struck Smith's vehicle.

Nowak was taken to York Hospital by medical helicopter. The other two drivers also went to area hospitals for treatment.

According to a York Hospital spokesperson, Nowak remained in serious condition Monday night. Murphy, who was also taken to York Hospital, had been treated and released.

Smith was taken to Gettysburg Hospital following the crash, and a hospital spokesperson said she was still being treated later Monday evening.

Police did not describe any of the vehicles or give ages for the victims, but they said each car was occupied only by a driver. No further details on the accident were immediately available.

Route 30 east of Gettysburg, between Flickinger and Hoffman roads, was closed for about an hour as crews worked at the scene.
