According to a Journal News report by columnist Hoa Nguyen, a 67-year-old woman from Mahopac, NY died a day after being injured in a motor vehicle accident on Sunday, December 13, 2009. The woman, Barbara Lawrence, crashed into a utility pole on East Main Street in Jefferson Valley, NY.
It is unclear what caused the accident. However, black ice and bad weather conditions resulted in numerous accidents in the New York and New Jersey area that day. Ms. Lawrence was transported to Westchester Medical Center for treatment of her injuries immediately after the crash. The results of the autopsy have not yet been reported.
