Crash Sends SUV Into PA News Building, Killing Two

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (AP) – A central Pennsylvania traffic accident sent a sport utility vehicle crashing into the front of a newspaper building, which collapsed onto the vehicle and killed two people.

The Cumberland County Coroner says 49-year-old Jeffrey Gaver and 89-year-old Grace Branthafer were pronounced dead at the scene of the 11 a.m. Friday accident in Shippensburg.

Police say Gaver was driving an SUV that rear-ended a second car and then slammed into the Shippensburg Sentinel building, sending a large section of the facade crashing onto the vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle was treated for moderate injuries.
