Coudersport Woman Injured In Crash Tuesday Morning

Woman Made Illegal Pass/Crashed Into Stopped Car
A Coudersport woman received minor injuries Tuesday morning and a couple of summons when her vehicle crashed into another after making an illegal pass in a construction zone.

Troopers said the crash occurred at the intersection of Route 6 and Rock Road in Ulysses Township at 8:35 am.

They reported that Helen Jane Lampman, 87, of 87 Oak Lane in Coudersport, PA, failed to adhere to warning signs indicating road work ahead as she was driving her 2006 Dodge Stratus east along Route 6.

Bryonna Lee Swede, 39, of 161 Anson Road, Coudersport, PA, driving a 2002 Dodge Caravan, was in a stationary position along Route 6 at a red traffic light while waiting for the light to turn green to continue movement.

Lampman executed an unlawful pass of another vehicle and attempted to return to the eastbound lane just prior to impact. She applied her brakes, leaving 15 feet of brake marks on the roadway leading to the point of impact.

Following impact, Lampman's vehicle came to rest in the eastbound lane, pushing Swede's van forward leaving 5 feet of brake marks on the highway.

The Dodge Stratus suffered major disabling damage. The Caravan was moderately damaged.

Charges against Lampman will include Careless Driving, and Limitations on Driving On The Left Side of Roadway. She will answer the charges in District Court 55-4-03 in front of District Judge Delores G. Bristol.

87 years old... when do we pull their lisence? Older drivers should be screened more often, and should be under special scrutiny, just like teens.

I agree! Old drivers are a hazard! Please get them off our highways! They are always on the roads in the winter, too, when driving conditions are bad.

You willing to drive them around ?

Granted, some should be off the road.

There are a few in town that can barely walk/use a walker -- hope into their vechile and zip down the road. Now, that's scarey!
