GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A Fayetteville, Pa. woman was killed Monday when her car crossed the median strip on Interstate 81 and struck a Ford Explorer head-on, said Franklin County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner.

Christine Raifsnider was pronounced dead at the scene after her late-model Geo Metro crossed from northbound I-81 into the southbound lanes about 5:16 p.m. north of Exit 3 in Antrim Township, said Conner.

The driver of the Ford Explorer was taken to Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown. No further information was available on his condition, Conner said.

The accident closed the southbound lanes of I-81 until about 10 p.m. The northbound lanes reopened about 7:25 p.m.
