Fatal crash

This 1988 Ford Bronco crashed on Montgomery Street in Shamokin Wednesday morning, killing both occupants.

SHAMOKIN — Northumberland County Coroner James Kelley released the names of the two victims involved in Wednesday morning's double-fatal one-car accident on Montgomery Street in Shamokin.

Kelley said Allen E. Travitz Sr., 68, and Mackenzie Mae Garber, 3, both of Shamokin, were killed during the accident and identified by family members.

The two were killed when a 1988 Ford Bronco, operated by Travitz, struck a concrete barrier designed to keep vehicles from driving into Carbon Run.

The investigation into the accident is continuing with the Shamokin Police Department and Coroner's Office, Kelley said.

Assisting Kelley at the scene of the accident was Chief Deputy Coroner James R. Gotlob.
