Pocono Mt. East crash

One high school football team from Monroe County will be taking the field Saturday night with heavy hearts.

Pocono Mountain East faces off against East Stroudsburg South at 7 p.m.

It's Pocono Mountain's first game since three players were injured in a violent accident in Paradise Township Tuesday night.

Two of the players, 17-year-old Steve Dienno and Justin Bullock, are still in critical condition tonight.

According to investigators, Dienno lost control of the car, which went airborne and hit two trees before splitting in half.
