At around 11 p.m. on the night of March 3, 2011, a deadly Pennsylvania auto accident occurred when a vehicle unsuccessfully attempted to pass another and caused a head-on collision.
Accident investigators stated that a Jeep Cherokee driven by a 21-year-old driver, of Harleysville, was speeding west on Skippack Pikenear Landis Road in Worcester Township.
The driver of the Jeep approached another vehicle and attempted to pass, but he crashed head-on with a Nissan Sentra, driven by 23-year-old from Philadelphia.
The Jeep then struck a third vehicle, a Toyota Camry driven by 19-year-old from Lansdale.
This impact caused the Jeep to flip over and collide with a fourth vehicle, a Ford Explorer, driven by 19-year-old from Harleysville.
The driver from Philadelphia in the Nissan Sentra died at the accident scene of her injuries.
Others involved were all flown by PennStar to the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center for treatment.
Some sustained major injuries, while one sustained minor injuries and one was uninjured in the crash.
Police blocked the road for nearly six hours while they investigated the accident scene. They have not yet released the cause of this fatal accident.
