Two people died in a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 70 in Washington County when a tractor-trailer crossed the median and crashed into another vehicle Saturday, Washington County Coroner Tim Warco said in a statement.
The names of the victims have not been released, but both died from multiple injuries, according to the release.
"A tractor-trailer, which was traveling westbound, crossed the medial and struck the victim’s vehicle, driving it through the guardrail and over an embankment," Warco said in a statement.
Both the driver and the passenger in the Dodge car were killed in the accident near the south junction at I-70 and I-79, Warco indicated.
There were a total of three vehicles involved in the crash, and others who were injured were taken to area hospitals by ambulance and medical helicopters from the scene.
State police are investigating the crash.
