Representatives from the Pennsylvania Highway Patrol have identified the individual they suspect was killed in a single-vehicle accident in Dover Township, Pennsylvania on February 16th, 2013. Police and accident investigators currently estimate that KatieJo Bryant was killed when the vehicle she operated potentially experienced a sudden loss of control or possible mechanical error as she navigated West Canal Road in Dover Township. The vehicle left the roadway for reasons currently under investigation whereupon it collided with a tree.
Scene of the Accident
According to the report, the vehicle erupted into flames as a result of the collision with the tree, and KatieJo Bryant was subsequently pronounced dead on the scene from the massive injuries she incurred in the accident when emergency response personnel arrived. Bryant was alone in the vehicle at the time of the accident, and authorities are hoping any eyewitnesses that have not yet come forward in an effort to aid investigators better understand the nature of the fatal crash will do so as soon as possible. At this point in their investigation authorities do not have reason to believe that a high rate of speed was a contributing factor in the accident.
