Tot Killed In Crash Wasn’t In Seat

NICHOLSON, Pa. (AP) – Officials say the 3-year-old girl killed along with her father in a northeastern Pennsylvania traffic crash wasn’t in a safety seat or wearing a seat belt.

Authorities say 25-yearold Jeffery Pifcho and his daughter, Kylie Anne, were killed in the crash last Wednesday morning when Pifcho’s truck crossed the center line and struck another truck head-on in Wyoming County.

Coroner Thomas Kukuchka says there’s no indication the Lawton, Susquehanna County man was drinking before the crash but toxicology tests are being conducted.
