BREAKING: Two men pronounced dead following police pursuit, crash in Peters Twp

20 December 2023- On December 20th, 2023 at approximately 12:52am, Troopers were dispatched to the 9000 block of Lindale Avenue, Antrim Township, Franklin County for two males getting into vehicles and were determined to possibly be engaged in thefts. The males then fled the scene in a green Jeep SUV.

After canvassing the area, Troopers observed the suspect vehicle traveling on Oellig Road. Troopers then attempted to initiate a traffic stop. At that time, the vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit ensued.

Multiple attempts were made by PSP in an attempt to stop the vehicle but were unsuccessful. The vehicle traveled off the roadway, through multiple farm fields and properties at a high rate of speed. It then drove over a steep embankment and came to a final rest in a body of water. Due to the dangerous conditions, EMS, local fire rescue, and water rescue units were summoned to the scene.

The two males were located deceased in the vehicle after attempts at a rescue.

The investigation is ongoing and further information will be disseminated by PSP at a later time.
