5 Die As Motorcycle, SUV Collide In Pa.

Authorities say five people were killed when two motorcycles collided with an SUV in south-central Pennsylvania near the Maryland line.

Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey Conner tells the Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Md., that the five died in the crash Saturday afternoon in Washington Township.

According to the paper, township police confirmed that two motorcycles traveling in one direction collided head-on with the SUV, killing four people on the motorcycles and one person in the SUV.

Conner says officials still were notifying next of kin and couldn’t release further information.

Washington Township Supervisor Elaine Gladhill says she went to the scene because of the high number of fatalities to support emergency workers. She called it “horrific.”

Spokesmen for county and township police as well as the coroner couldn’t be reached early Sunday for further comment.
