Police and newspaper reports from Shamokin, just outside of Sunbury, state that a head-on motor vehicle crash on August 1, 2011 along Route 147 in Lower Augusta Township claimed the lives of two women and closed a two-mile section of the highway for more than three hours. Amelia D. Shrawder and Laurie J. Holt, were killed in the crash.
Trooper Marc Yemzow of the state police reported Shrawder was driving south on Route 147, approximately one mile north of Fishers Ferry, when her 2005 Chevrolet Venture van crossed into the northbound lane and struck a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee operated by Holt nearly head-on. Both vehicles sustained severe front-end damage and were towed by Sunbury Motors.
Head on collisions can be some of the most serious accidents and cause fatalities. Always be extra vigilant while driving on roads that are prone to such crashes.
