Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania say a car and a sport utility vehicle collided head-on, killing both drivers and injuring another person.

Police say 27-year-old Rachel Young of Earl Township was heading south on Route 73 at 11:15 a.m. Wednesday when her car crossed the center line at a bend and hit the SUV driven by 78-year-old Paul Yoder of Boyertown.
