State police say a mother and her daughter died in a fatal collision between a truck and a horse-drawn Amish buggy in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Authorities say 34-year-old Mary Byler, of New Wilmington, and her 11-year-old daughter, whose name was withheld, died in the crash Saturday. Byler's husband, 35-year-old William Byler, was seriously injured and flown to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown, Ohio.

Emergency dispatchers say the incident happened late Saturday afternoon, about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. The truck was driven by 36-year-old Matthew Coulter, of Pulaski. His condition wasn't available.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene by Mercer County Coroner Brad McGonigle. He says they died of blunt force trauma.

State Police are investigating.
