ARCHBALD, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say the crash of an all-terrain vehicle over the weekend in northeastern Pennsylvania claimed the lives of a man and woman.

Police in Lackawanna County said the ATV struck a tree in Scott Township at about 7 p.m. in Scott Township near Archbald.

Coroner Timothy Rowland said Ronald Webb, 30, of Scranton was pronounced dead shortly after 9:30 p.

m. at Geisinger Community Medical Center. He said Courtney Reeves,31, of Falls Township died at about 2 p.m. Monday at the hospital. Both died of multiple traumatic injuries, he said.

Chief Jared Ganz of the township police department said he didn't believe speed was a factor and called it “just an unfortunate accident.” He said both riders were wearing helmets at the time of the crash, which occurred on a dirt road that connects with Route 247 near the Archbald line.

Landslide at Myanmar Jade Mine Kills at Least 50 People

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — A landslide at a jade mine in northern Myanmar killed 50 people Thursday, the central government said, though a local lawmaker said the toll was nearly twice as high.

The Ministry of Information cited the local fire service when giving the death toll at the site of the landslide in Hpakant in Kachin state.

The area is 950 kilometers (600 miles) north of Myanmar’s biggest city, Yangon, and is the center of the world’s biggest and most lucrative jade mining industry.

A lawmaker from Hpakant, Khin Maung Myint, said local rescue services told him 99 bodies had been recovered and 54 injured people were sent to three hospitals.

The website of 7Day News Journal reported earlier that 200 people were unaccounted for.

Other details of the accident were not immediately available.

Accidents at such mining sites causing multiple casualties are not rare.

The victims are normally freelance miners who settle near giant mounds of discarded earth that has been mined in bulk by heavy machinery. The freelance miners who scavenge for bits of jade usually work and live at the base of the mounds of earth, which become particularly unstable during the rainy season.
