NORTH WALES, Pa. (CBS) -- Two people were killed in a head-on crash involving an SUV and a car-carrier truck on Route 202 near Horsham Road on Monday, police said.

Montgomery Township police were called to the scene just before 11:30 a.m. and found a 2017 Toyota RAV4 and a 2021 Peterbilt car-hauler truck. There was also a black 2006 Ford Mustang that had overturned on the road and had fallen off the truck during the collision.

Police said the Toyota was heading southbound on Route 202 when the driver, a 50-year-old woman, veered over the yellow line and crashed into the oncoming truck in the northbound lane.


Police said the driver of the Toyota, who was from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, was ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. Her passenger, an 86-year-old woman from Ambler, was pulled from the vehicle by Montgomery Township firefighters and pronounced dead.

The driver of the Peterbilt, a 44-year-old Levittown man, was taken to Grand View Hospital with minor injuries.

Chopper 3 flew over the crash just before 2 p.m. 

The 202 Parkway between Horsham and County Line roads was closed Monday afternoon while police continued to investigate and clear the area. The road has since been reopened.
