Two people were killed in a head-on collision on Wednesday afternoon along Route 422 in Butler County.

State police said the crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. when a westbound motorist crossed the center of the highway and collided with a car. The drivers of both vehicles -- Justin M. Scheehle, 24, of Butler, and Anthony R. Miske, 42, of Windber -- were killed, troopers said.

Following impact, the eastbound car struck two others cars, troopers said. A passenger in one of the cars, Tami J. Fraser, 46, of Fenelton, was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Troopers said there are indications that Scheehle fell asleep at the wheel.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to extricate the victims from the wreckage.
The crash occurred between Giebel and Heist roads in Summit, three miles east of Butler. Eastbound traffic was blocked for nearly four hours by the collision.
