WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) — Five people were killed when two motorcycles collided with an SUV in south-central Pennsylvania near the Maryland line.

The five died in the crash Saturday afternoon on a road in the Cumberland Valley, about 70 miles southwest of Harrisburg.

Washington Township police said two motorcycles traveling in the same direction collided head-on with the SUV, killing four people on the motorcycles and one person in the SUV.

Authorities did not release the victims’ names, saying police were still notifying next of kin. Police and the Franklin County coroner provided no further details early Sunday.

Washington Township Supervisor Elaine Gladhill told The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Md., the scene was “horrific.” She said grief counselors were sent.
