Woman Killed in Five Car Pileup

KELLY TOWNSHIP — A woman is dead after a car driving in the wrong direction caused a pileup in Union County.

The wreck happened at the intersection of Route 15 and Ajk Boulevard just north of Lewisburg around 9:00 Sunday night.

Troopers said Edward Peace, 81, from Gorham, New York was going in the wrong direction on Route 15 when his car slammed into four other vehicles stopped at a red light.

Investigators tell us Ellen Kear, 35, of Turbotville died in the crash.

The road was shut down for about five hours as crews cleaned up.
