A Christmas night crash left two dead and an infant girl hospitalized.

Police in western Pennsylvania say the head-on wreck between two sport utility vehicles killed both drivers and injured two other people, including an 8-month-old baby.

State police in Washington County say one SUV heading north on Route 128 in Morris Township crossed the center line and collided with a southbound SUV at about 6:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say 46-year-old Shari Cox of Prosperity was pronounced dead at the scene and 28-year-old Stephen Breese of Washington, Pa. died at Washington County Hospital.

Passengers in Breese's SUV including front seat passenger Katherine Breese, 30, and the 8-month-old girl, who was strapped into a child safety seat in the backseat were hurt, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Katherine Breese was flown to UPMC Presbyterian and the 8-month-old girl was flown to Children's Hospital. Their conditions weren't immediately available.
