According to police, a Chevy Bolt was driving the wrong way and slammed head-on into a Ford Fusion with three occupants in the car. This caused a chain reaction, where a Chevy truck with two people inside and a Chevy Equinox with one person also collided into the other cars. 

Two passengers were pronounced dead at the scene, according to state police.
