    Woman Killed in Lincoln Drive Crash

    A woman is dead and six other people injured after a car crash involving multiple vehicles on Lincoln Drive.

    Police say a 21-year-old man was driving a 2001 Subaru Outback south on Lincoln Drive around 2:40 a.m. The man turned at a right bend on the road and crossed the intersection at Morris Street when he lost control of his vehicle and crossed into the northbound lane, according to investigators. Police say he struck a 2000 Nissan Maxima driven by a 41-year-old woman, head on.

    The crash sent the Nissan backwards and it was struck again in the rear by a 2000 Honda Civic driven by a 40-year-old woman who was traveling north on Lincoln. The initial impact also sent the Subaru across the southbound lanes and crashing into a guardrail, ejecting the front seat passenger in the process.

    Police say the rear passenger in the Outback, a 27-year-old woman, suffered severe head injuries. She was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead at 7:02 a.m. The 21-year-old driver of the Outback complained of pain but refused to be taken to the hospital. The front seat passenger was taken to Temple University Hospital after suffering from a depressed skull fracture and bleeding on the brain. She is currently in critical condition. Another rear passenger was taken to the hospital after complaining of pain.

    Both the driver and passenger of the Nissan Maxima were taken to the hospital and underwent surgery after suffering broken bones. They are both currently in stable condition.

    The driver of the Honda Civic was taken to Temple University Hospital where she was treated and released.

    No charges have been filed as of now. Police continue to investigate.
