Deadly Crash in Schuylkill County


TREMONT TOWNSHIP — A woman died in a fiery crash over the weekend in Schuylkill County, according to state police.

Troopers tell us Barbara Shuster, 73, of Pine Grove was killed when she drove into the path of an SUV around 3:20 p.m. Saturday on Route 125 near Tremont. Her vehicle caught fire.

A woman who works at a restaurant nearby says she ran out with a fire extinguisher and tried to help.

“I wish there was something I could have done. If I had gotten there faster, somebody lost a family member, somebody lost a mom, a grandmother and I know I wouldn’t want to get that phone call,” said Autumn Miller.

Witnesses were able to rescue a passenger in Shuster’s vehicle. That woman and the driver of the SUV were taken to the hospital after the crash in Schuylkill County.
