A truck driver was illegally passing traffic on the grassy median when the driver lost control and drove to the opposing side of the roadway.
The driver of the Ford F-350 was trying to pass a traffic jam in the south lanes of Rt. 301 when the driver lost control trying to merge onto the roadway. The F-350 hurdled into the northbound lanes, hitting a Grand Caravan which carried a 34-year old mother and her 10-year old child.
Mother and child were rushed to the hospital, where the mother was pronounced dead, and the child is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
According to police, the driver of the Ford F-350 was not injured in the crash.
Had the negligent driver obeyed traffic laws, remained patient, and employed common sense, this tragedy would have been avoided.
