A man is dead following a crash in Tioga County, Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania State Police say it happened just before 7 o'clock Monday night on Route 349 in Clymer Township.

28-year-old Laura Kio of Sabinsville was driving south on 349 when she spun out of control and crashed into a vehicle parked in a driveway.

One of the passengers in her vehicle, 31-year-old William Kurtz of Sabinsville suffered severe head trauma in the collision, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
