Baden police officer, father, 3rd man die in McKean County truck crash

A part-time police officer in Beaver County, his father and a friend died early today when the officers pickup truck crashed into a wooded area along Route 66 in McKean County.
State police are investigating the deaths of Andrew Snarey, 25, of Aliquippa, his father, George Snarey, 60, of Carnegie and Jeffrey Kramer, 28, of McDonald.
McKean County Deputy Coroner Sam Cummings said all three men were killed on impact when Snarey lost control of his Ford F-350 around 1:30 a.m. about one-tenth of a mile north of the Elk County line.
State police said the truck struck some trees and flipped onto its roof.
Snarey was a part-time officer for the Baden, Conway and Harmony police departments.
State police said a third passenger, Todd Kosenina, 42, of Imperial was moderately injured and transported by helicopter to Hamot Medical Center in Erie.
Cummings said the results of a toxicology test will take about three weeks. All four men were wearing seatbelts, police said.
Cummings said the stretch of road where the crash occurred, called James City Hill, is very narrow and the area is heavily wooded.
"It's a bad hill. There's a big S-turn," Cummings said.
