SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP -- State police continue to investigate a deadly wrong-way crash in Lackawanna County over the weekend and want to talk with anyone who saw either of the two people in the wrong-way car before the crash.

Troopers said Gennadiy Manannikov and Ashley Wheeler were in the car going the opposite way on Interstate 81 Saturday morning.

Wheeler was a passenger. She was killed in the wreck.

Three people in the car they hit near Clarks Summit were also killed.

Troopers believe any information about where Manannikov and Wheeler were prior to the crash could help with the investigation.
