ALUM BANK, Pa. – ALUM BANK, Pa. (AP) — A five-vehicle crash involving tractor-trailers hauling ice cream and refrigerators in western Pennsylvania has left two people dead.
State police in Bedford County say the crash happened Monday morning on a highway in West St. Clair Township. They say both truck drivers died.
Investigators say one of the tractor-trailers slammed into a car as they were trying to negotiate an eastbound curve. It then hit a westbound tractor-trailer and two other cars.
Police haven't said if the crash began with the truck hauling ice cream or the one transporting refrigerators.
The names of the truck drivers haven't been released. Two of the car drivers were injured.
Route 56 reopened Monday evening, but officials say it will be closed again Tuesday morning.
