  • Pennsylvania Turnpike: five killed and dozens injured in crash

Photos from the scene show a mangled pileup of multiple vehicles including an overturned bus, two tractor-trailers, passenger cars and a smashed FedEx truck that left packages sprawled along the highway.

A turnpike spokesman tells The Associated Press that the Westmoreland County coroner confirmed the deaths in the early Sunday crash and said 60 people were hospitalized with injuries.

The crash happened on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Westmoreland County, around 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Reports indicate 25 people ranging in age from 7 to 52 were taken to the Excela Frick Hospital in Mount Pleasant, two of whom are expected to be transferred to the trauma unit.

The UPMC Somerset Hospital received 18 patients, a spokesperson told WTAE. Turnpike is closed in both directions from New Stanton (#75) to Breezewood (#161).

FedEx did not provide any other details besides that they are co-operating with authorities.

The bus was reportedly traveling from New York City to Columbus, Ohio. He added that a portion of the turnpike will likely be closed for the rest of the day, DeFebo said.

It is unclear what caused the crash, which occurred at around 3.30am.

Westbound motorists are urged to use Route 30 west to Interstate 99 north to US Route 22 west to Route 66 south and re-enter the turnpike at Exit 75 New Stanton.
