A fatal crash has closed the westbound lanes of State Route 16,  just west of State Route 146 in Hanover Township.

The crash occurred shortly before 8:30 p.m.

All traffic was diverted off the highway. According to the State Highway Patrol, the driver of a three-wheeled-motorcycle was traveling westbound when he struck the back of a Dodge Durango.

The impact sent the Durango down an embankment, where it turned onto its side.

An adult and two children in the Durango were transported to the hospital. The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation and we’ll bring you more details as they become available.
