MEADVILLE, Pa. — An out-of-control pickup truck smashed into a brick home, killing a woman who had slipped into bed.
“The truck hit the house . . . and landed on her,” said Scott Schell, the Crawford County coroner.
Carol Lee Ramey, 51, was home alone at the time. An autopsy determined she died from blunt force trauma to the head and torso.
It could not be determined if Ramey was asleep, Schell said. The accident happened at about 10:30 p.m.
A truck driven by Charlene Lillie traveled approximately 100 yards through a yard before striking a few small trees and then hitting and embedding itself in a downstairs bedroom.
An investigation to the case is ongoing. So far no charges have been filed.
