Coal Township police are investigating a pair of crashes that sent six people to Geisinger Medical Center on Sunday afternoon.

Both crashes occurred at about 1 p.m., within minutes — or possibly seconds — of each other, officers reported, and within a distance of about 50 yards on Route 901 between Excelsior and the Mount Carmel Township line.

This highway is terrible. people are always passing on the no passing lanes. They travel at extremely high speed, I'm not surprised of the many accidents. I travel this road daily and it is filled with crazy drivers, always in a hurry! More police may help!!
