Head-on crash kills 2 women; speed deemed a factor
DONEGAL, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say speed is believed to have been a factor in a head-on crash between two vehicles in western Pennsylvania that killed two women.
The Westmoreland County coroner’s office said a car heading south on Route 711 in Donegal Township collided with a northbound sport utility vehicle shortly before 3 p.m. Friday.
Coroner Ken Bacha said 47-year-old car driver Shari Kohan of Lower Yoder Township was killed along with 75-year-old SUV passenger Gloria Randall of Mount Pleasant Township. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.
Bacha said speed is believed to have been a factor in the crash. Toxicology test results aren’t expected to be available for several weeks. State police are investigating the cause of the crash.
