SOUTH BEND, Pa. (AP) - Police have identified three teenagers and a 41-year-old woman killed in a head-on crash on a rural western Pennsylvania highway.

State police from Kittanning says 19-year-old Brandon Sulava, of Apollo, was killed along with his passengers, 15-year-old Brandon Sauers, of Apollo, and 18-year-old Brieyonah Painter, of Kittanning.

They died when Sulava’s Ford Mustang crossed the center line of Route 156 in South Bend Township and hit a Chevrolet Lumina driven by 41-year-old Crystal Kay Kelley, of Avonmore, who was also killed. Three passengers in her car were flown to a Pittsburgh hospital in critical condition.

Coroner Brian Myers says the crash happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and was so “horrific” the impact tore the Mustang in half.

There was no immediate evidence of drugs or alcohol, but Myers says it appears the Mustang was speeding.
