A rear-end collision in Pennsylvania resulted in the death of two elderly women on Oct. 13. The fatal car accident took place in Stroud Township while the two victims were seated in the backseat of a car that was traveling southbound along Route 209. When the victims' car reached the intersection of Schafer's School House Road, a tractor-trailer struck it from behind.
One of the deceased victims, a 76-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:10 a.m. The other victim, a 78-year-old woman, was rushed to Lehigh Valley Hospital where she was later pronounced dead at 3:18 p.m. Before their death, the two victims had been on an outing to an alpaca farm with two other women.
