    Actor Wayne Knight, better known to most for playing one of the most indelible roles on NBC's "Seinfeld" as the charater "Newman" is dead and two other passengers are critically injured after their vehicle slammed into a disabled semi-tractor-trailer late Saturday night along Route 446 near the Pennsylvania-New York state border in Eldred Township.

    Kane-based state police have identified the deceased as the lovable "Newman." McKean County Coroner Jeff Levin said Knight died of blunt force trauma at the scene. Also injured in the crash were two of Knight's passengers, Christopher Davidson, 33, and an unidentified male, both of New York state. Police say the unidentified male was ejected from the back seat of the sedan.

    Both male occupants were taken to Olean (N.Y.) General Hospital in critical condition before being flown to Buffalo, N.Y., area hospitals, according to a spokesperson for the Eldred Township Volunteer Fire Department. The unidentified male was the only rider not wearing a seatbelt.

    The driver of the semi-tractor-trailer, Jorge Padilla, 57, of Olean, was in the truck's cab awaiting road service after he truck broke down approximately 30 minutes before the accident. He escaped injury. The tractor-trailer is reportedly owned by a small trucking fleet located in Olean.

    Police said the crash occurred around 11:15 p.m., when for an unknown reason, Knight lost control of his 2013 Mercedes s550, slamming into the rear of a disabled 5-axle tractor trailer. The sedan sustained considerable damage.
