2 dead in Route 15 car crash near Milton

State police at Milton say two people were killed early Sunday on Route 15 near West Milton.

A driver of a car and a passenger in another car in the collision were pronounced dead at the scene in Kelly Township, police said.

The crash occurred at 2:30 a.m. as a driver in a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling north but in the southbound lane. The second car, a 1993 Subaru Legacy, was traveling southbound on Route 15 in the left lane.

The Cobalt struck the Subaru head-on, police said. That initial impact caused the Subaru to overturn and land in the grass median.

The Cobalt continued to travel north and collide with the passenger-side of a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer.

The Cobalt then stopped on the west shoulder of the highway.

The Mountaineer came to a stop 50 yards south of the scene.

Further information will be released pending family notifications, police said.
