FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - A Waynesboro, Pa., woman died Tuesday in York (Pa.) Hospital of injuries she received in a vehicle accident Sunday evening in Guilford Township, according to the York County Coroner's Office and Pennsylvania State Police.

Anna M. Monn, 54, of 8814 Tomstown Road, died at 4:04 p.m. of hemorrhaging from multiple blunt force trauma received in a vehicle accident, according to the coroner's office.

Police said Monn was driving a 1983 Mercury Sable shortly after 6 p.m. when she pulled from a stop sign on Hickory Drive into the path of a 2001 Jeep driven by Eric Crider, 26, of Fayetteville. Police said Monn failed to see Crider's vehicle approaching on Wilkson Lane and the Jeep struck the driver's side of the Sable.


Crider and Monn's husband and passenger, 52-year-old Jacob Monn, were not injured, police said. The accident remained under investigation, police said.

According to the Franklin County 911 Center, a two-vehicle accident with injuries was reported at that intersection at 6:06 p.m. Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Co. records stated that fire and ambulance units were dispatched to the scene at 6:07 p.m.

Leona Monn, Anna Monn's mother-in-law, said the couple had gone to see friends and were then going to a nearby restaurant when the accident occurred.

Leona Monn said Anna Monn sustained numerous fractures and internal injuries in the crash.

"She was a wonderful person. She was so considerate of everybody," Leona Monn said of her daughter-in-law.

Leona Monn said Anna Monn had three children from a first marriage and her son had two children. "They raised them together."

"Her stepdaughter said, 'I don't want to be put in (the obituary) as a stepdaughter. She was my mother,'" Leona Monn said.

"You could never tell they were her stepchildren. She was just like their mother," said Tina Bumbaugh of Waynesboro, Anna Monn's sister-in-law.

Leona Monn said the intersection is dangerous and drivers have to pull out from the stop sign to get a view of oncoming traffic.

"Since the accident, there's been a lot of people who say there should be a four-way stop sign there because it's a bad intersection," Bumbaugh said.

Anna Monn formerly worked at Regency Thermographers in Waynesboro for 18 years, Leona Monn said. Jacob Monn still works at Regency and Anna Monn helped him with his flea market business, she said.
