State police on Friday said two girls, ages 3 and 8, were killed when the mini-van they were riding in traveled into the oncoming traffic lane on state Route 487 and was struck by a van.

The driver of the mini-van, the girls’ mother, Amanda Haskell, 28, of Berwick, and her 5-year-old daughter were taken to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, for injuries. The driver of the van, Richard Spicher, 37, of Lewisburg, reported no injuries.

The occupants were wearing seat belts, state police said.

The crash occurred around 9 a.m. as Haskell was traveling south on the roadway, state police said. The mini-van sustained severe rear-passenger side damage. The van sustained moderate front-end damage. The two girls were pronounced dead at the scene. The crash investigation is ongoing.
