A young Schuylkill County man is dead and at least one other person is seriously injured after a three-car crash in West Penn Township.

19-year-old Nicholas Sadusky of Mary D was heading south on Route 309 near the intersection with Blue Mountain Drive around 9:00 Wednesday morning.

He was reportedly driving at a very high rate of speed when he swerved to the left. Sadusky crossed all three lanes before hitting the back of a northbound car. He then collided head-on with a northbound Audi.

Sadusky was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Audi was flown to the Lehigh Valley trauma center with serious injuries. The extent of any other injuries is not known.

Route 309 was closed for several hours over the Blue Mountain.
