DEER CREEK TWP., Pa. - Three people are dead after a two car crash on Interstate 79 in Mercer County.

Two woman, and one man died in the two car crash that occurred shortly before 6 p.m. Friday evening south of the Crawford County line.

A news release from the Pennsylvania State Police says that a Dodge Challenger driven by 62-year-old Robert Neubert II of Amherst, NY swerved off the southbound lane of I-79 into the northbound lane striking a Chevy Cruze driven by 54-year-old Susan L. Thomas of Sewickly, Pa.

The Chevy vaulted over a guardrail, landing on it's side, 63 feet from the road.

Both drivers and 44-year old Mary Carmody of Sewickly, Pa, a passenger in the Cruze, died in the crash.

The northbound lanes were closed for nearly 3 and a half hours between route 358 and route 285, backing up traffic for four miles.
