A dump truck crashed near Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Thursday killing 40-year-old twin siblings from New York.
The Examiner reports that the siblings, a sister from Rochester and brother from Penfield, had been headed to New York City for the weekend and were traveling through Dunmore, Pennsylvania, when a dump truck driver who was traveling in close proximity failed to negotiate a corner and lost control of his vehicle. The dump truck struck an embankment and went airborne around 5 p.m., striking the roof of the vehicle that the victims were traveling in.
The dump truck was then hit by another vehicle, a truck being operated by a 41-year-old man from East Bangor, Pennsylvania. A 33-year-old male from Jessup, Pennsylvania, drove the dump truck. The twins were pronounced dead at the scene on Thursday evening. The driver of the dump truck was hospitalized, but the driver and passenger in the third vehicle did not require hospitalization.
