Pennslyvania Woman Killed by Dump Truck

Comments Off

A woman driving a car on a Pennsylvania road was killed after being struck by a dump truck.  The trucking accident happened in Whitemarsh Township last week.  She swerved into the other lane and the driver of the dump truck was unable to avoid a collision.

The dump truck driver said he did not have enough time to react because he did not see Dancona until he reached the top of the hill. The drivers tried to swerve away from each other but still could not avert the crash, according to the witnesses. 
 

The victim died at the scene.  It is unknown why her car went into the other lane.  The driver of the dump truck was injured and taken to a local hospital.  The police are investigating the accident and toxicology testing is being performed.
