Two people were killed and four others were hurt Saturday afternoon in a head-on crash in Newberry Township, according to police.

Police were called to the area of Old Trail Road near Stevens Road about 5 p.m., police said.

Killed were Anthony W. Fickes, who was driving one vehicle, and Edna Mikos, a passenger in the other vehicle. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner’s office, and neither was wearing a seat belt.

Fickes, 46, of Goldsboro, was the only person in his vehicle and was thrown from it during the impact, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

Mikos, 66, of York Haven, was trapped in the second vehicle, the coroner's office said.

Both died of multiple traumatic injuries, and no autopsies are scheduled, according to the coroner's office.

Seriously hurt: Newberry Township Police said a 5-year-old was flown to Hershey Medical Center by medical helicopter.

Three other people — age 13, 14 and 69 — were taken to York Hospital by ambulance with serious injuries, according to police.

Police said they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to Lt. Steve Lutz at (717) 938-2608.
