Six people were injured Saturday evening in a two-vehicle collision on Route 8 in Center Township.

The T-bone crash happened about 5:50 p.m. when one of two sport utility vehicles headed in opposite directions crossed into the other lane just north of Swamp Run Road.

The road was snow- and slush-covered and conditions could have been a factor in the wreck, emergency crews said.

State police are investigating, but an accident report was not immediately available.

Unionville volunteer firefighters responded along with Butler Ambulance Service and Slippery Rock Ambulance.

One of the vehicles had two occupants and the other had five people in it. Three ambulances took one driver and five passengers to Butler Memorial Hospital with minor to moderate injuries.

Two dogs were riding in one of the vehicles, but neither appeared to be injured.

Firefighter Matt Hudak bundled one of the dogs, a Chihuahua named “Tucker,” in his coat to keep warm while its owner was treated.

Both dogs were taken to the Unionville fire station and later picked up by a friend of the owner.

The crash closed a portion of the road for about 90 minutes.
