Station wagon crashes in Pa., killing 3 children

HARRISBURG, PA Police say a 57-year-old woman was driving the car Saturday night in tiny Middle Paxton Township, in Dauphin County. They say the car veered out of its lane, crashed through the guardrail and hit a guide wire before going airborne and slamming into a tree. They say it went down a 50-foot embankment and landed upside down.

Deputy Coroner Lynn Choborda says the accident killed a 5-year-old boy and a 3-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl believed to be twins. The driver is hospitalized in serious condition.

Police in Harrisburg say they're investigating the cause of the accident, which occurred in the heart of central Pennsylvania in the county that's home to the state Capitol complex.
