2 Dead In Smethport Car Crash Tuesday Afternoon

Two Smethport area residents are dead after the 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier they were traveling in went into a roadside ditch and flipped several times, ejecting both the driver and her passenger onto the roadway where they were struck by another vehicle.

Tamara Brow, 39, of Smethport, PA, the driver, and 
Steven Raszman, 31, of Smethport, PA, her passenger, were pronounced dead at the scene by McKean County Coroner Michael Cahill.

Brow came to rest on the southbound lane of Rt. 46 where she was struck by another vehicle. Raszman came to rest on the northbound lane where he was also struck by another vehicle.

PA Dept. of Transportation, Smethport Volunteer Fire Dept.,Priority Care Ambulance, and McKeirnan's Towing assisted at the scene.

Seat belts could have prevented this. It's the law. Shame.

Looking at the picture of the car - doubt if seatbelts could have helped this time. Very unfortunate and condolences to everyone.

Post 12:13, I too believe it was their time, BUT, who knows if they would still maybe be here, just hurt, if they had been wearing seat belts ?? Prayers to all the family. Such a tragic accident. And prayers to the people who hit them on the road way. They must also be devistated. I can't imagine. So very sad.

I don't think it's anyone's place to say "seatbelts could have prevented this", two young people with children and families were ripped from this Earth too soon. Seatbelts or not, if you knew the circumstances of the accident, seatbelts were irrelevant. Praying for your wonderful mother and father Stevie, and that you found are resting peacefully along with your love.

I agree about seatbelts. At least there wouldn't be any doubts if they had been wearing them. Now the occupants of other vehicles have to deal with hitting them. Not being mean. I feel horrible. This accident has ripped through the community and children are left without parents. Just because someone posted what others were thinking, don't get all snarky. Based on only the info in this article, it would be a genuine consideration.
That being said, we should look to helping their children. It will be rough for them now, during this holiday season and for years to come. May God bless the family.

Who is anyone to question God's will? You can complain about both folks being ripped from the Earth all you want, but if you do, you're questioning God. We don't know why God does the things he does, but that isn't for us too question. It is what it is, and someday Gods will might be revealed; or, not. God decided to call these two people home; respect and accept.

is this really the time and place to be informing everyone of the lack of seatbelts issue and "this could have been prevented"; and 'it's just their time'. really!!?? how about some common decency and compassion!!?? sometimes people on here are just cruel and vicious. Perhaps if a similar tragedy happens to you and your family -people will show you the same kindness you are expressing! cruel and vicious!

As a family member of one of the victim's, I ask that both of our families are shown some respect during this difficult time.... the details are irrelevant now... lives were lost too soon. It is tragic. who knows if the seat belts would have saved them. Was it their time to go? Is it really anyone's business other than their family? Is it ok to spread rumors? I would like to think we all have to believe that for whatever reason they were called upon to do something greater, and that they are somehow at peace. let their families grieve in private.

I always told her to wear her seatbelt. why? so we don't wreck n die. :*( my heart is broken. this is tough to accept. saturday will be toughest.

shoulda woulda coulda dont change anything at this point. but just remember, be careful. life's dangerous. and none of us get out alive. thank you everyone for the support. small towns are full of warm hearts and open arms when tragedy strikes.

My heartfelt condolences goes out to all family and friends. What a horrible thing to happen. People should support the families not post any negative remarks. After all how would you feel if it was your loved one. Prayers for all'
