Fatal Crash Claims Local Woman

By Cassidy Pittman

A local woman was killed in a car crash April 9 at 3:30 p.m. when a Green 1999 Ford F250 crossed the center double yellow line at 1200 Lincoln Highway and entered the opposite lane of travel.

Robert Earl Burkholder, 32, Mann’s Choice, failed to properly negotiate a right-hand curve in the roadway, striking a Red 2003 GMC Envoy at the 11 o’clock position. The Envoy, driven by Connie J. Seville, 53, Wells Tannery, then travelled off the road and into a tree. Seville was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation is ongoing.
