BRODHEADSVILLE, Pennsylvania — Four people, including two Pennsylvania state troopers, have been injured in a head-on collision.

The Pocono Record (http://bit.ly/1id3cks) said the crash happened early Sunday in Chestnuthill Township, Monroe County.

State police have identified those involved in the crash as Troopers Jeffrey Kowalski, who was driving, and Gary Fedorczyk, both of the Fern Ridge barracks.

The occupants of the other car have been identified as driver Jean Fonte of Kunkletown and passenger Erin Dooner of Effort.
