Woman Lifeflighted From Crash Near Denton HIll

Two women were hurt in a two vehicle accident at 12:30 Sunday afternoon when one of the vehicles slid on an ice covered roadway east of Denton Hill on Route 6 and slammed into an oncoming vehicle.

Kimberly Payne, 25, of 2148 Haskell Road, Olean, NY, was seriously injured and flown by helicopter from the scene.

Mary Tinder, 48, of 10099 SR 961F, Arkport, NY, sustained a minor injury.

Trooper Bryan Uhl of the Coudersport barracks said Payne was traveling westbound on Route 6, approximately 1/4 mile east of Route 449, when she suddenly lost control of her vehicle on an Ice covered roadway. The vehicle then crossed the centerline of the roadway and impacted Tinder's oncoming eastbound vehicle.

Both vehicles were completely disabled and towed from the scene. Assisting at the scene were Coudersport EMS, Galeton Fire & EMS, and Kightlinger's Towing. The investigation is continuing.

Hey Mr. "slow the hell down" I am here at the hospital with Kim and her family. My wife is her best friend. Currently we don't know if this brilliant 25 year old young woman, who just passed the bar, and has always been a very cautious driver, will survive the night, but by all means keep on bitching about a situation you know nothing about while Kim fights for her life. Or you could be a decent human being and throw up a prayer (or good thoughts) towards Kim, her family, and her friends.  
Solomon's says--Please take time right now to pray for Kimberly Payne's healing!! We are.

Mr. "You can slow the hell down"...really she is fighting for her life. How would you feel if this was your daughter?

I have no facts in this particular accident, and therefore cannot comment on the speed of this particular car. However, I was involved in an accident that was strictly due to road conditions and speed was not a factor in the least. Therefore, it really irritates me when people automatically jump to the conclusion that if the speed was different, then the accident would not have occurred. I speak from experience that accidents CAN still occur even while going slow if the road conditions are bad.

I agree with 1:12. It also happened to me only in a torrential downpour and on ponding water on the roadway. I had slowed way down but when I ran into the ponded water, I started hydro-planing and there was no way out. Also, people could show a little more compassion on here or else not get posted at all. What if this young woman does not make it? How would you feel then Mr. "Slow the hell down"? Hope it never happens to you. Where is your heart anyway man!

Number one, how do we know that the person making the comment was a he? Secondly, I travel Denton Hill every day and it has taken me by surprise on more than one occasion. What it needs are large signs or some kind of warning lights to make people aware that conditions are poor. There have been many times over the years that the "Hill" is slippery when the road leading to it is not.

I am wondering how this young lady, Kim, is doing..... My family and I witnessed the accident. She simply lost control of her car on the completely icy road. She was wearing her seat belt. I have been praying, and we are wondering how she is.....

My sister came upon this accident and called it in. We have all been praying for her!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with Kim and her family and friends. I live on the dirt road close to where the accident happened and I seen how bad it really was. I'm sorry this had to happen. Anything can happen no matter how fast or slow someone drives while roads are icy. Kim, please stay strong and hang in there! May God be with you and lay a healing hand on you in this time of need. Everyone please pray for this young lady.

I was on that road Sat. and Sun. and I can say it was very slipper in many spots and it was 48 degrees out, I can't imagine what winter is going to be like.

I went over Denton Hill around 7:30AM and they were fine but I had a person who came over an hour later and they said they were a glare of black ice. When the sun came out on the cold road it just covered the road with Black ice and there is nothing anyone can do until it is to late because the road does not appear to be slippery. My prayers are with the family.Sunday was the same way.

I am Nancy Lineman from the State's Attorney's Office in Prince George's County, Maryland. Kim works with us as a district court case screener. Please let her family know that she is in our thoughts and prayers. If there's anything we can do, please let us know. My e-mail address is: nclineman@co.pg.md.us. Thank you. She is a wonderful human being and we hope and pray for her.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and concern. Kim is still in a coma, and has brain trauma, major damage to her carotid arteries, and a broken pelvic bone. We won't know how bad the brain injuries are until she wakes up. She is a tough lady and the fact that she is young is good but she still has a long way to go. She still needs all of your prayers. Cards can be sent to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown PA. I think you can send a card directly through their website (no flowers at this time please) I'll continue to keep you guys updated. Thanks

I was so very sad to hear of Kimberly's accident. Kimberly and her brother could not have been more than 10 or 11 years old when I last saw them prior to going off to college myself. I worked for her father's Veterinary business and also on his farm. I know from first account that Dr. Payne and Susanne always encouraged them both to excel at whatever they put their minds to. I have no doubt they have and continue to make them both proud.

I hope and I pray that she heals and that strength keeps their lovely family fighting along with her. God Bless!

1. Was driving the speed limit. The police checked marks in every attempt to give a ticket.
2. Not familiar with the area so would have no idea that on a 50 degree sunny day there would be ice on this poorly maintained and constructed road. (PA is lucky there is something called sovereign immunity)
3. To all of the accusatory people, I am biting my tongue to not wish something like this happens to you. To all of the nice ones, I appreciate you.
