KANE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a head-on crash in northwestern Pennsylvania has killed six people, including two children.

State police in Kane say the crash happened at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. They say an SUV driven by 36-year-old Kathy Douglas crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the front of an approaching sedan.

The four occupants of the sedan died in the crash. They are the driver, 62-year-old Gary Beimel, and his passengers, 54-year-old David Cuneo, 55-year-old Elaine Beimel and 81-year-old Florence Donachy. All are residents of St. Marys.

A boy and a girl in Douglas’ vehicle also died, ages 6 and 12. A 10-year-old boy in her car was seriously injured.

The investigating officer, Trooper Roger McCloskey, says he believes Douglas was at fault and will face some sort of charges.
