Another death announced from Pennsdale wreck
PENNSDALE — Monday’s fatal three-vehicle crash on Route 220 has claimed a second life, according to Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr.
Hurley Gordner, 97, of Hughesville, a wheelchair-bound passenger in a Dodge Caravan, died Tuesday afternoon in the intensive care unit at UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport Regional Medical Center of blunt force trauma and multiple fractures, Kiessling said. State police said Gordner was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Nicole Temple, 31, of Muncy, who suffered minor injuries and was treated at Muncy Valley Hospital.
Another passenger in the same vehicle, Felicia Bauman, 31, of Muncy, also was treated at Muncy Valley Hospital.
Temple was traveling east on Route 220 when the her van and a Trailblazer traveling north on Beacon Light Road collided about 3:30 p.m., state police said.
The driver of the Trailblazer, a 78-year-old New York City man, was pronounced dead at the scene. His vehicle overturned, landing in a ditch, police said.
Kiessling said Tuesday night his office was withholding the man’s name because investigators still have not been able to reach any of his family members.
Following the initial collision, the passenger side of Temple’s van struck the passenger side of a Chevrolet Spark driven by Lily Winder, 57, of Montgomery, who was traveling west on Route 220. Winder also was treated at Muncy Valley Hospital.
