NEW BUFFALO, Pa. (WHTM) -

State police have identified two men who were killed in an Thursday morning crash on Route 11/15 in Perry County.

Twenty-year-olds John Murray and James Bechdel, both of Clinton County, died after a 2007 Ford Ranger crossed from the southbound to the northbound lanes in Watts Township and hit a tractor-trailer head-on, according to police.

Murray and his passenger died at the scene of the crash, which occurred shortly before 6:30 a.m. near the New Buffalo Restaurant.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, 55-year-old John Ohagan, of Ontario, was not injured.

Authorities have not yet determined why the pickup truck went into oncoming traffic. The investigation is ongoing.
