Two people killed after car crash in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania

Two people are dead after a fatal crash in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania on Saturday evening.

Crews were called to the scene on N. Hunter Highway, State Route 309 just south of Sleepy Hollow Road in Butler Township around 7:30 p.m.

According to Butler Township Police, the vehicle, a 2020 Tesla, was being operated by Crystal Stash, age 35 from Dallas, Pennsylvania.

Stash was heading northbound when she lost control while negotiating a curve.

The vehicle went throughout the oncoming lane, struck guide rails, and became airborne before falling some hundred feet down an embankment.

Officials carried out a rope rescue to reach the victims.

Stash was declared dead at the scene, while a passenger, Henry H. Abrahams, age 28 of Stanhope, New Jersey, was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital Hazleton and died sometime later.

Traffic in the area was restricted to one lane in each direction for about 3 ½ hours but has since resumed.
