Wellsville Woman Dies in PA Crash

A Wellsville woman is dead following a multi-vehicle accident in south-central Pennsylvania Sunday morning.

77-year-old Beverly Grantier died at about 10 a.m. after the crash that shut down Interstate 81 in both directions near the Maryland border. Another passenger in the mini-van, 79-year-old Gordon Grantier was critically injured.

State police say a tractor trailer jack knifed, blocking both northbound lanes, and causing nine other vehicles to crash.

Investigators blame the crash on the sudden onset of snowy conditions.
