Bystander killed when two vehicles collide

LOCK HAVEN – A local woman was killed in a freak accident Tuesday afternoon on Cider Press Road in Woodward Township.

Rachael D. Kauffman, 42, was pronounced dead on arrival in the emergency room at UPMC Lock Haven Hospital following the 4 p.m. accident, according to Clinton County Coroner Zach Hanna.

Hanna said there was a two-vehicle accident on Cider Press Road and one of the vehicles rolled over, striking Kauffman, who was standing beside her car parked in front of 305 Cider Press Road.

She was transporting children to that residence for piano lessons, Hanna said.

Hanna said occupants of the two vehicles involved in the crash suffered minor injuries.

Woodward Township Police are investigating the accident but could not be reached by press time last evening.
