SOUTH BEND (AP) – Police identified three teenagers and a 41-year-old woman killed in a head-on crash on a rural Western Pennsylvania highway.
State police from Kittanning said 19-year-old Brandon Sulava, of Apollo, was killed along with his passengers, 15-year-old Brandon Sauers, of Apollo, and 18-year-old Brieyonah Painter, of Kittanning.
They died when Sulava’s Ford Mustang crossed the center line of Route 156 in South Bend Township and hit a Chevrolet Lumina driven by 41-year-old Crystal Kay Kelley, of Avonmore, who was also killed. Three passengers in her car were flown to a Pittsburgh hospital in critical condition.
Coroner Brian Myers said the crash happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and was so “horrific” the impact tore the Mustang in half.
