Three Pennsylvania women lose their lives in automobile accident in Watts Township

November 12th, 2012 by Gabriel Z. Levin
The coroner reported that the elderly driver who was killed did not have any condition that would impact her driving.

Pennsylvania police reported that three females lost their lives on Saturday, October 20, in an automobile accident that occurred in Watts Township, near Harrisburg. Police reports indicated that a 69-year-old woman from Duncannon driving a pickup truck was killed when it swerved into the opposite lane of traffic.

It then collided with a Chevrolet Cavalier driven by a 22-year-old female. She and the passenger in that car, a 21-year-old woman, also died. Both victims were from Windsor.

Another vehicle with a male and an infant hit the Cavalier from behind and survived the car accident. They were transported to Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The Perry County coroner who was responsible for performing the autopsy revealed that the 69-year-old, who was pronounced dead at the scene, died from trauma she endured. However, according to the medical examiner's account, she did not suffer from an illness that would have impaired her driving ability. 

The fatal collision closed Route 11/15, the site of the crash, for approximately four hours. State Police at Newport reported to the scene and were aided by the PSP Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit, the Pennsylvania State Police Forensic Services Unit and the Perry County Coroner’s Office.
