Sullivan County woman dies in Tuesday crash

MUNCY VALLEY —  A Sullivan County woman in her 40s was killed Tuesday morning when she lost control of her pickup truck that overturned on snow-covered Route 220 and landed in a ditch, according to county Coroner Wendy Hastings.

The woman, traveling north, lost control of her vehicle just above Sonestown about 11:30 a.m., Hastings said, adding that investigators still were trying to reach out-of-state family members on Tuesday night before releasing her name.

State police  —  along with volunteer firefighters from Muncy Valley, Eagles Mere and Laporte — responded to the crash.

Hastings said the woman, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene of “multiple blunt force trauma injuries.”

Motorists were detoured around the scene until the vehicle was removed.
