An 80-year-old Pennsylvania woman was pronounced dead on Wednesday, January 30 after she was involved in a car accident in Chester County. According to sources, the Cochranville resident was killed after her car crashed into a Ford pickup truck at Fernwood Drive and Route 41. The collision, which occurred at approximately 2:30 p.m. also injured the owner and driver of the truck.
Law enforcement officials reported that the 80-year-old female was driving a Dodge Aries and headed east on Fernwood Drive in Londonderry Township, which is about two miles from Cochranville. She allegedly failed to stop at the intersection, and her vehicle was hit by the front bumper of the Ford. The impact caused the woman to be ejected from her car. Rescue crews arrived on the scene, but there was little that could be done to help her. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The man in the truck was transported to Lancaster General Hospital, where he was treated for non-threatening injuries. It is unclear whether he is currently receiving in-patient treatment or has been released. Police have said that they do not intend to charge him with any offenses. Neither the owner of the Dodge nor the Ford were wearing safety belts.
