Officials said the crash in South Heidelberg Township occurred shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday and involved a State Police SUV, another SUV, and a car. The Berks County Coroner’s office said 62-year-old James Cooling and 65-year-old Michele Cooling of East Cocalico Township, Lancaster County were killed. The trooper and two other people from Lancaster County were taken to Reading Hospital. Police said the trooper was heading to aid a police officer who was assaulted while trying to arrest a man on probation and DUI warrants. That officer was treated for a sprained wrist and the suspect arrested Sunday.
