ERIE, Pa. (AP) — A coroner has identified three men killed when their speeding sport utility vehicle ran a red slight and slammed into a tractor-trailer in Pennsylvania.

Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook says 65-year-oold Oscar Johnson and Charles Barnes were killed along with their 72-year-old friend, Willie Byrd. All three lived in church-run senior citizens high-rise in Erie, where the crash occurred at a busy intersection about 2 p.m. Friday.

Witnesses told police that the SUV was speeding and weaving in traffic when it went through a red light and ran into the semi’s trailer.

The truck driver wasn’t hurt.

Cook said one man’s partial remains were found in the SUV.

The other two were ejected and their remains were found in debris spread over a half block.

Police still aren’t sure who was driving.
