At least a multiple-vehicle crash left a woman dead and her husband critically injured. Harrisburg, Pa was the setting of the mishap last Friday.

The fatality was identified as Kathleen Weed, age 64, who died from the crash while George, her husband, sustained life-threatening injury and was airlifted at the Medical Center of Penn State in Hershey, Pa.

According to public information officer for the Pennsylvania State Police, Trooper Rob Hicks, the couple was traveling north along 1- 81 around 4:00 o’clock in the afternoon near Silver Spring Twp., Cumberland County, when they were hit by another vehicle.

During that time, traffic was backed up so George Weed drove his sports utility vehicle slowly as he was approaching two tractor-trailers in front but he was suddenly rear-ended by another tractor-trailer that was running very fast. The SUV was propelled into the tractor-trailer in front, said Hicks.

The operator of the tractor-trailer that hit the back of the SUV sustained minor injuries.

Inside the SUV was Pittsford couple, Kathleen Weed, age 64 and George Weed, age 63 who was operating the car.
