3 killed in head-on crash in Armstrong County
Three people died and three were hurt early Sunday in a head-on crash in Armstrong County.
The crash happened about 2:50 a.m. on Route 28/66 in Manor when a Chrysler 200 collided with a Subaru Outback, state police said.
Police believe one of the vehicles was driving the wrong way but haven’t determined which one.
Gregory Johns, 46, of Worthington; Alex Davis, 21, of McGrann; and Francis Danahey Jr., 27, of Verona were killed, said Robert Bellas, Armstrong County’s chief deputy coroner.
The three died from blunt-force trauma to the head, chest and abdomen, he said. His office was awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine whether drugs or alcohol were a factor.
Johns drove the Chrysler, Davis drove the Subaru, and Danahey was riding with Davis, state police said.
A passenger in the Subaru — Michael Danahey, 26, of Kittanning — was flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland with severe injuries, Bellas said.
A Dodge Caravan was involved in the crash. Two people in the van were taken to Armstrong County Memorial Hospital with minor injuries, Bellas said.
The wreck shut down the highway for about six hours, emergency dispatchers said.
