Woman killed in Jackson Township crash

According to law enforcement authorities, a 74-year-old Myerstown woman lost her life as a result of a two-vehicle collision on Oct. 24 in Jackson Township. The accident allegedly occurred around 10:30 am according to Pennsylvania state police.

Reports indicate that the woman was driving her 1995 Taurus station wagon through the intersection of South Ramona Road and West Main Avenue. The other driver, a 76-year-old man, was apparently driving a 2002 Chevy Silverado pickup truck. The man allegedly ran a stop sign at the intersection and hit the woman's vehicle broadside. There is no word on what caused the man to allegedly run the stop sign.

The Lebanon County Deputy Coroner was called out by emergency responders. He pronounced the woman dead at the scene of the accident. The 76-year-old man was transported via ambulance to Reading Hospital for treatment of what police classified as minor injuries he sustained in the accident. The victim leaves behind her disabled husband for whom she had provided care for many years.

Many people fail to pay attention while driving and run stop signs. When they do so and have a car crash as a result, they may be held to be civilly liable to the families of victims who are killed. Families may be able to recover damages for their loss through filing a wrongful death suit against the negligent driver. He or she may have to pay such damages as funeral expenses, loss of companionship, bereavement counseling costs, pain and suffering, loss of current and future income, loss of inheritance rights, property losses and any medical expenses associated with their loved one's care prior to death. Families of those wrongfully killed may thus wish to speak with a personal injury attorney who accepts wrongful death cases.
