State police said three people were killed, including a 4-year-old boy, in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday on Route 21 in McClellandtown.
The crash occurred shortly before 4 p.m. near the Double T Bar and Grill in German Township. State police are working to determine the cause of the crash.
State police Trooper Robert Broadwater said a man, woman and 4-year-old child were killed. The names of those involved in the crash have not been released.
A tri-axle truck and a personal vehicle were driving in opposite directions on a hill along a curve of Route 21 when the collision occurred, Broadwater said.
The tri-axle truck was over an embankment, and the second vehicle was against a guard rail.
Emergency crews remained on the scene into the evening.
