Two people were killed and four others, including children, were injured in a head-on crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike over the weekend.
The wrong-way crash happened late Saturday night in Beaver County.
State police say 76-year-old William Paxton, of Pittsburgh, was driving eastbound in the westbound lanes when he slammed head-on into a car driven by a man from Ohio.
Both drivers died at the scene. Paxton’s wife was taken to the hospital with suspected serious injuries. A 40-year-old woman in the other vehicle was hospitalized, along with a 4-year-old boy. A 5-year-old girl was reportedly uninjured.
Authorities say Paxton had traveled on the wrong side of the highway for eight miles before the accident happened. They don’t know why.
