ST. THOMAS, Pa. - A 49-year-old Greencastle, Pa., woman died Wednesday evening from injuries she sustained in a collision involving a car and a sport utility vehicle on Warm Spring Road in St. Thomas Township, according to Pennsylvania State Police and Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner.

Conner did not release the name of the woman Wednesday night because family members had not been notified. The name of the woman, who was pronounced dead at Chambersburg (Pa.) Hospital, and other details will be released at noon today, Conner and police said.

Police said the accident occurred at 6:08 p.m. at 4276 Warm Spring Road. The woman was driving a 2005 Ford Focus south when it crossed into the northbound lane and struck a 2000 Ford Expedition.

The name of the driver of the Expedition, a 36-year-old Chambersburg man, was not released. The police report said the man was not injured.

The report did not indicate if there were other people in either of the vehicles. Both drivers were wearing seat belts, police said.

Conner said there were people treated and released. The police report indicated that a child safety seat was in use in the Expedition.

Conner said the accident occurred between St. Thomas-Edenville and Valley Camp roads. A county 911 dispatcher said that section of Warm Spring Road was close while police, fire and ambulance personnel were on the scene.

The St. Thomas Volunteer Fire Co. cleared the scene at 8:20 p.m., the dispatcher said.
