FREDERICKSBURG, Pa. — Authorities have released the names of the three people killed in a huge pileup on a central Pennsylvania interstate during a snow squall.

State police in Lebanon County said Sunday that 50-year-old Kenneth J. Lesko, of Bethpage, New York; 54-year-old Francisca V. Pear, of Bridgewater, New Jersey; and 57-year-old Alfred Dean Kinnick, of Limestone, Tennessee, were all pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said 73 people were taken to 11 hospitals for treatment following Saturday morning's crash on Interstate 78 that involved 64 vehicles, including a dozen commercial vehicles such as tractor trailers and box trucks.

One person remained in critical condition Sunday, when the interstate reopened to traffic.
