CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A mother of four and grandmother of three was identified Monday by the Cumberland County Coroner's Office as the second woman killed in a Wednesday, June 20, accident on Interstate 81.

Annette Olivia Domer, 38, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident near the Newville, Pa., exit, according to Deputy Chief Coroner Todd Eckenrode. The delay in releasing the name was due in part to Domer not having any identification on her at the time of the accident, he said.

Also killed in the 3 p.m. accident was Carol Fiscaletti-Mackaravitz, 26, of Chambersburg, Pa. Her identity was released Thursday by the Coroner's Office.

Eckenrode stated in a news release that there was no evidence that either woman was wearing a seat belt when the van they were in struck another vehicle and rolled several times. Pennsylvania State Police said both women were thrown from the van.


Melvin Garcia-Rivera, 30, of Chambersburg, was driving the van north on the interstate when he tried to merge into the left lane and struck a Honda Odyssey, police said. He and five other people in the van were not seriously injured, police said.

A police spokesman said last week that Garcia-Rivera was driving on an expired Puerto Rico driver's license. He was driving to work in Carlisle, Pa., when the crash occurred, police said.

Garcia-Rivera was charged with accidents involving death or personal injury while not properly licensed, recklessly endangering another person and driving without a license, and jailed on $200,000. He was being held Monday evening in Cumberland County Prison, a prison official said.

Domer worked for R.E.M. Staffing, a temporary staffing agency with two offices in southeastern Pennsylvania, according to its Web site.

Domer's obituary stated that she formerly was from Martinsburg, W.Va., where her husband, Norris B. Domer, lives. She is survived by three daughters, a son and three grandchildren, according to the obituary.

The phone number listed for Domer was not in service Monday.
