STOCKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - State police say a car plunged down an eastern Pennsylvania embankment, killing two people.

Police in Northampton County say the car was heading south on Route 33 in Stockertown shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday when it crossed the median.

The vehicle went down the hill and flipped over, landing near railroad tracks. The driver and a passenger were killed.

The identities of the victims are being withheld until their relatives can be notified.

Police say they don’t know what caused the car to leave the highway, and they are seeking witnesses to the accident.
