BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – Two people died in an accident that shut down part of Route 322 in Brookville, Jefferson County last night.

The accident took place around 9:00 p.m. when a 2004 Honda Civic operated by 27-year-old Anthony J. Turner, of Zanesville, OH, left the right side of the roadway while traveling east at a high rate of speed on Route 322 near Moonlight Drive-In Theatre.

The right side of Turner’s vehicle subsequently collided with the front of a 2007 GMC Envoy operated by 65-year-old Pat N. Smith of Brookville.

Turner and a 1-month old female infant were pronounced dead at the scene by Jefferson County Coroner Bernie Snyder.
