Troopers say the driver of the second vehicle, 66-year-old David Bohlander of Wyalusing, was unable to avoid contact with Bush's Honda Accord and his Toyota Tundra hit the passenger side of the Towanda man's car.

Bush, who was not wearing a seat belt, was declared dead at the scene.

Bohlander was transported to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre for treatment of what were believed to be minor injuries. The police report indicates Bohlander was wearing a lap and shoulder belt.

A portion of Route 187 was closed for two hours.
