Claysburg woman killed in accident

A 70-year-old Claysburg woman died in a traffic accident Monday afternoon in southern Blair County.

State police at Hollidaysburg said Joyce M. Eicher died in a fatal accident that occurred where Route 36/Woodbury Pike intersects with Cross Cove Road, south of Roaring Spring.

The other driver in the accident, Michael A. Walters, 31, of Hollidays­burg, reported an injury of unknown severity but was not transported by ambulance.

State police said Eicher, who was driving west on Cross Cove Road, was completely stopped at a stop sign and red flashing light at the intersection.

Cross Cove traffic has to stop, while vehicles on Woodbury Pike have a yellow flashing light, a state police release said.

Eicher pulled westbound into the intersection. Walters was unable to stop, and his Nissan Titan struck Eicher’s Chevrolet Malibu.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, police said. Eicher was pronounced dead at the scene.
