Rome Township, PA (WBNG Binghamton) Pennsylvania State Police say two people are dead after a crash in Bradford County.

It happened just before 1 p.m. Friday in Rome Township.

Police say 49-year old Mack Cranmer Jr. of Wysox was driving along North Rome Road when his truck crossed the center line into the path of a dump truck.

Both vehicles tried swerving to avoid each other but swerved in the same direction and hit head on.

Cranmer had to be pulled out of the vehicle. His two passengers, 69-year-old Mack Cranmer Sr. and 68-year-old Linda Cranmer, were killed.

Police say no one in the vehicle were wearing seatbelts.
