LEITERSBURG - A father and his teenage daughter died Wednesday night in a two-vehicle crash on Leitersburg Pike, and police were looking for the car they believe caused the accident.
Nicholas S. Sabath, 49, of Hagerstown, and Sylvia Sabath died in the accident that was reported at 6:23 p.m., near the Antietam Creek bridge.
Police said Sabath was westbound on Md. 60 in a 1989 Honda Accord when he attempted to avoid an eastbound Pontiac Sunfire that crossed the center line east of Lehman's Mill Road.
Police said Sabath lost control of his vehicle and veered into the path of an eastbound 1992 Jeep Wrangler driven by John C. Pangborn, 19, of Hagerstown.
