LAMAR TOWNSHIP — Authorities in Clinton County said two people are dead and three children were flown to the hospital after a head-on crash.

Police said Thomas Zierenberg of Allison Park, near Pittsburgh and Courtney Rebuck of Loganton were killed.

The crash happened on Route 220 in Lamar Township just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Troopers believe Zierenberg’s car crossed the center line and slammed into a Rebuck’s van. They said distracted driving contributed to the crash.

Police reconstructed the scene and detoured traffic away from the area.  The road was closed until 8:15 p.m.

The conditions of the three children were not released.
