Apollo woman killed in Route 819 crash
An Apollo woman died in a one-car accident Friday morning along Route 819 in Salem Township near Slickville, state police at Kiski Barricks said.
A police report said Christina L. Adamczyk, 26, was alone in her car, which hit a tree about 7:20 a.m. about two miles south of the intersection with Route 286.
Her airbag did not deploy, police said.
The crash happened when Adamczyk's car was traveling south "at an unsafe speed" when she left the lane on a right-hand curve, police said.
The car crossed into the opposing lane of traffic and skidded sideways back to the southbound lane, then off the berm, according to a report from Tpr. Shawn Askins.
His report said the 2001 Nissan Altima's left front end hit a tree. That sent the car into the air, where it knocked down a tree before landing over an embankment, the report said.
Westmoreland Deputy Coroner Joseph Musgrove said Adamczyk was pronounced dead at the scene.
"She died from blunt force trauma to her head, and the death was ruled accidental," he said.
State police were assisted by Lifestat Ambulance and Slickville and Bell volunteer firefighters.
