(CORNWALL) -- Police say two men were found dead with gunshot wounds after a crash in Lebanon County.

Cornwall police responded shortly after 10 p.m. Monday and found two Reading men lying in the roadway, one with a gunshot wound to the chest and another with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

Police in the Lebanon County borough said a vehicle heading north on Route 72 had swerved, struck a post holding traffic signs and hit a median barrier.

Authorities haven't determined whether the men died of their wounds or due to the crash.

A handgun was found on the roadway.

Witnesses reported a third person in the vehicle who fled on foot and was being sought.

Anyone who saw someone walking on the road is asked to call investigators.
