The fateful incident unfolded around 2 p.m. on Springfield Road within the bounds of Smithfield Township. Pennsylvania State Police at Towanda, on the scene, swiftly identified the victim and the crumpled remains of a silver Subaru Outback SUV, bearing the unmistakable scars of the calamity.

Shirley Mancuso-Zettel’s life had been tragically cut short in the course of the incident, and her demise was pronounced at the site of the collision. Thankfully, there were no other reported casualties stemming from this harrowing car crash.
