Woman Dead, 2 PSP Troopers Injured In Fairview Township Crash

State police involved in fatal collision in Fairview

Staff report, Erie Times-News
 An Edinboro woman died early this morning after her vehicle collided with a Pennsylvania State Police patrol vehicle in Fairview Township.

State police said Trooper Frederick Schimp was driving a 2013 Ford Explorer westbound on Sterrettania Road at 3:34 a.m. when Schimp failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection with state Route 98. Schimp's vehicle was struck in the left front-end area by a 2012 Suzuki Kizashi driven by Donna Platz, 57, of Edinboro, who was driving north on Route 98, police said.

Platz was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:45 a.m. by Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook. Both Schimp and Trooper Garrett Padasak, who was a passenger in the Ford Explorer, had to be cut from the vehicle before being taken to UPMC Hamot with moderate injuries.

Schimp and Padasak are troopers at the state police's Girard barracks. State police said they were not responding to a call at the time of the crash. Read more...
