WAYNESBORO, Pa. (AP) - Five people were killed when two motorcycles
collided with an SUV in south-central Pennsylvania near the Maryland
Washington Township police said two motorcycles
traveling in the same direction collided head-on with the SUV on
Saturday afternoon in Franklin County, killing four people on the
motorcycles and one person in the SUV. The scene of the crash is about
70 miles southwest of Harrisburg.
Authorities did not release the victims' names,
saying police were still notifying next of kin. Police and the Franklin
County coroner provided no further details early Sunday.
Washington Township Supervisor Elaine Gladhill told
The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Md., she went to the scene because of
the high number of fatalities to support emergency workers.
"The scene was horrific," she said. "It's probably the worst single accident with that many fatalities in the township."
She said grief counselors were sent to the scene
and Fort Ritchie Access Road, where the accident occurred, was closed
for about five hours.
