State police Saturday identified a Sewickley woman as the third person killed in a two-vehicle crash Friday on I-79 in Mercer County.

State police said Mary G. Carmody, 44, of Sewickley, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Susan L. Thomas, 54, also of Sewickley.

Police said both women were killed when their vehicle was struck head on by another driven by Robert J. Neubert II, 62, of Amherst, N.Y. Police said Neubert was driving south when he lost control of his vehicle and it crossed the median into the northbound lanes, colliding with Thomas' vehicle around 5:45 p.m.

Mercer County deputy coroner Robert Snyder pronounced both women dead at the scene. Neubert died at UPMC Horizon Greenville hospital.

Police said they are not sure why Neubert's vehicle crossed the highway.
