Truck Slides Off Icy Central Pa. Road, Killing 2

LEBANON, Pa. (AP) – Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a pickup truck slid off an icy road and flipped over before hitting a building, killing two men.

Police said the truck was heading south on ice-covered Route 897 in Lebanon County’s South Lebanon Township at about 4:42 a.m. Saturday when it went off the road and rolled over, then hit the Met-Ed building.

The Lebanon Daily News says 22-year-old Jake Doster of Schaefferstown and 22- year- old Joshua Moyer of Richland were pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner.

Police said speed may have been a factor in the crash.
