An unknown motorist was hauling a load of lumber on Route 27 near the Basin Road, when numerous large beams hit a pair of vehicles coming from the opposite direction.
The impact killed the driver of the first vehicle, and injured the two people riding in the second car.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department says the vehicle that was hauling the lumber didn’t stop, and the driver hasn’t been located.
Police hope the public will help them find the suspect.
So far, authorities haven’t identified the person who was killed.
The driver of the second car has been identified as Katherine Jones, who, along with a passenger, are doing okay following the collision.
