Pennsylvania (November 15, 2011) – A fatal car crash claimed the lives of two 19-year-old women in the Natrona Heights section of Harrison Township.
The accident occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Monday, but was not discovered until approximately 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
Numerous scrapped vehicles, located where the accident occurred, may have inadvertently caused the tragic event to blend into its surroundings.
According to the police, the victims’ black Chevrolet Cobalt collided with a flatbed trailer, which was parked at a towing and salvage company, Ron Gillette, on Freeport Road.
Elizabeth “Beth” Carney and Samantha “Sammie” Smith, both residents of Tarentum, were returning from a trip to Walmart at the time of the fatal accident.
Officials are still investigating the cause of the accident.
