    5 Killed in Crash

    Police are investigating a crash in Northeaster Pennsylvania. Five people died. (Published Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014)

    Authorities say five people, including children, have died in a multi-vehicle crash in northeastern Pennsylvania.

    The crash happened Saturday on Route 115 in Effort, in Monroe County, about 35 miles north of Allentown. It's the same county where authorities are searching for the suspect in last week's deadly ambush at a state police barracks.

    Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen tells Pocono Record that the victims were all riding in the same car and that a high rate of speed played a role in the crash.

    Four vehicles were reportedly involved. Authorities haven't released any names or further details, but part of Route 115 was closed.
