FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - A 92-year-old Chambersburg, Pa., woman died Wednesday at Waynesboro (Pa.) Hospital from injuries she received in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Mont Alto Road and Penn National Drive, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Martha M. Miley, of 3761 Scotland Main St., was pronounced dead at 9:17 a.m. in the emergency room of the hospital, Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said. The cause of death was blunt force chest trauma and there will be no autopsy, he said.

The car was being driven south at 8:45 a.m. when Etter attempted a left turn onto Penn National Drive and went into the path of a northbound 1998 Ford Contour driven by Joshua Straley, 20, address unavailable, of Waynesboro, police said.

Conner said Miley was in the front passenger seat when the crash occurred.
