A woman was killed Monday afternoon in a three-vehicle crash in the southbound lanes of Interstate 79 at the Carnegie on-ramp in Collier.

She was identified as Mary Jean Contaldo, 69, of Carnegie, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Contaldo was the only person injured in the crash, which occurred at 2:43 p.m. when she lost control of her car while rounding a curve along the on-ramp, state police Trooper Robin Mungo said.

A box truck driven by Kim Jin-Bok Felberbauer, 28, of Columbus, Ohio, struck the driver's side of Contaldo's vehicle, which was facing east in the southbound lanes, Mungo said. The truck then collided with a GetGo gas trailer driven by Robert Ferry, 49, of Imperial, who was traveling south in the middle lane, Mungo said.

Traffic was snarled for more than two hours because of the wreck.
