NEW BRIGHTON, Pa. – An 86-year-old woman missing for two days has been found alive in a car that went off the road in western Pennsylvania.
Helen McCoy had been partially trapped by the body of her acquaintance, who was driving and died in the crash.
McCoy and 73-year-old Robert Harris disappeared Monday night after visiting a social club in New Brighton, about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. The crashed car was spotted late Wednesday morning by relatives searching a wooded area.
McCoy, who lives in New Brighton, was disoriented but largely uninjured. She was recovering Wednesday at a Pittsburgh hospital.
Police say Harris had apparently suffered some kind of illness and drove off the road, hitting a tree.
