A Mercer County, Pa., police officer and his son died in a two-vehicle crash on Thursday.

State Police say 41-year-old Jeremiah Christner Sr., of Greenville, and 17-year-old Jeremiah Christner Jr. were in an SUV that went out of control on Greenville Sheakleyville Road and ran into an oncoming truck in the opposite lane, WFMJ TV reports.
