Fatal Accident

One woman is dead and others are injured after a three car accident in Grottoes.

It happened at about 7:30 this morning along Route 340, near Jollett Drive.

State Police say a Dodge Durango was heading south and sideswiped a GMC Jimmy, then hit a Nissan Pathfinder. The Pathfinder and the Durango both flipped over. The Durango slid off the road, and down into a ditch.

Police say the driver of the Durango was not wearing her seatbelt. She was ejected from her car. The car landed on top of her.

Sandra signs witnessed the wreck, and says she tried to help the woman trapped under the car. "I was very upset and i started to cry. I dropped out of my vehicle and I went down and turned the vehicle off, and I said "ma'am, ma'am" and she went "hmmm" and that's all she would say to me," says Brenda Saenz who was a witnessed to the accident.

The woman trapped under the car was later pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not yet released her identity.
