2 die in crash on US Route 422


Two people are dead after a head-on crash about 4:30 p.m. on U.S. Route 422 here, about a mile from the Ohio line. Police say a car was eastbound when it crossed two lanes of traffic, struck a guardrail, then crossed into oncoming traffic, striking a pickup truck head-on. A male passenger in the car and the 61-year old male driver of the pickup were pronounced dead. The male driver of the car was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown. Patrolman Randall Courson said he believes no one was wearing seatbelts and that was a factor in the crash.
