MAHONING TWP., Pa. - One person was killed in a crash in Carbon County Thursday morning.
It happened around 8:50 a.m. on Route 443 near Clinic Road in Mahoning Township.
Mahoning Township police said the driver of a Chevy Malibu traveling westbound crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic, striking a Chevy Blazer traveling eastbound.
The Malibu had one occupant, Warren Hile Jr., 50, of Tamaqua, who died in the crash. Police say he was unbelted, and so was the dog in the vehicle, who also died.
The Blazer had two occupants who were also not belted. The 57-year-old driver was flown to St. Luke's-Bethlehem by medical helicopter and the 65-year-old passenger was transported by ambulance to Lehigh Valley-Cedar Crest for treatment of serious injuries.
Crews at the scene said it appeared the vehicles slammed head-on.
Route 443 was closed while police investigated but it has since reopened.
One of two Lehigh County men charged after a fatal crash that involved a stolen minivan is now out of the hospital and behind bars.Read More »
