Location: 101 mile marker I-79 Worth Township Butler County
07/09/11 A family’s water skiing outing to Edinboro was cut short when their SUV rolled over on I-79 just north of the 101 mile-marker Saturday afternoon. A eleven year old female was transferred by a medical helicopter to children’s hospital in Pittsburgh. The father, who was the driver, was transported by ground ambulance to a local hospital. Three other children were not seriously injured. Family members were at the scene to remove personal belongings from the vehicle before it was towed. The driver told state police he was changing lanes and was surprised by a vehicle next to him and swerved quickly, losing control. One lane was open northbound until the medical helicopter landed, closing both lanes. The southbound lanes were not affected.
