Police release details on deadly crash

STROUD TWP – Three people were killed Sunday night in a three-car crash Route 209 at the notorious Shafer’s Schoolhouse Road intersection. 

Upon arrival, police observed two vehicles fully engulfed in flames on the northbound side four-lane Route 209, and another vehicle south of the intersection that had also been involved in the accident.

Initial investigation revealed that a white Ford Mustang and a black Mustang were travelling south on 209. Both Mustangs lost control, crossing the median into the northbound lane. The black Mustang collided head-on with a Subaru Forrester, causing both vehicles to become engulfed in flames. The white Mustang continued traveling south in the northbound lane until it collided with a guardrail and came to rest just south of Shafer’s Schoolhouse Road.

The driver of the Black Mustang and driver and the passenger in the Subaru all died at the scene. Names of the victims will not be released pending identification and notification of the next of kin.
