  • Staff and wire report July 27, 2013

SLOVAN – A one-vehicle crash killed two people and injured two others early Saturday in Smith Township.

Emergency dispatchers in Washington County said the crash occurred about 1:30 a.m., when the vehicle flipped over on Joffre-Bulger Road.

KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh identified the victims as Michael Gregg and Joe Bowland. The victims’ Facebook profiles indicate they are former Bulger residents.

Officials said the two men were taken to Weirton Medical Center in West Virginia, where they were pronounced dead.

Two other people were taken to Allegheny General Hospital and UPMC-Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh, where their conditions were not available Saturday night.

Smith police did not return messages Saturday.

In May 2012, Joffre-Bulger Road was the scene of another deadly crash.

Police said Aaron River Herriott, 18, of Grant Street, Bulger, and John J. Alouise, 62, and Debra L. Alouise, 51, both of Center Avenue, Burgettstown, were killed when Herriott’s vehicle crossed the center line, colliding with Alouises’ vehicle.
