HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) - Police have released the names of a man and woman killed in a motorcycle crash in Pennsylvania over the weekend.

The Hanover Township police department said Monday that 34-year-old Manuel Meson Ventura was operating the 2011 Kawasaki motorcycle that crashed shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday on Route 29 near the Interstate 81 ramp in Hanover Township.

He was killed along with another Wilkes-Barre resident, 18-year-old Yaleri Del Carmen Carballo Meson, when the motorcycle veered off the road and hit a guide rail. Neither was wearing a helmet and both were pronounced dead at the scene.
