Pickup crashes into western Pa. pond; 3 men killed

MARION CENTER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in western Pennsylvania say three men were killed when a pickup plunged into an Indiana County pond.

Chief Deputy Coroner Jerry Overman said emergency crews were called to South Mahoning Township just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Witnesses told police that the Kittanning men were inside the truck when it plunged into the small pond and overturned, trapping them inside.

Several witnesses went into the pond and tried to free the men but were unable to do so.

Volunteer firefighters from Plumville recovered the bodies of the victims, who were pronounced dead shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday.

Overman identified them as 20-year-old Sean Titus, 19-year-old Zane McMillen and 18-year-old Cody Douglas, all of Kittanning.

Toxicology tests are planned to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the accident.
