Greenville man killed in crash

GREENE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WKBN) — A Greenville man was killed and two other people were injured in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon.

The Mercer post of the Pennsylvania State Patrol said William Zuschlag, 22, was driving a 2004 Dodge Stratus south on West Jamestown Road about 3 p.m. when the accident occurred. Police said Zuschlag went into the northbound lane to pass another vehicle and attempted to avoid a head-on collision with a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze when he spun out and was struck from behind by the Cruze.

Zuschlag traveled off the east side of the road, where he was struck from behind again by the Cruze, which was driven by George Davis Jr., 64, of Linesville, Pa. Davis suffered moderate injuries and was taken by ambulance to Greenville Hospital. His passenger, Diane Davis, 53, also of Linesville, suffered minor injuries and also was taken to Greenville Hospital.

Zuschlag was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

None of the victims was wearing a seat belt. Both cars sustained severe damage.
