Members of a local family this week mourned one of their own, killed in a Sept. 26 car accident on Interstate 95 in Georgia while on her way to meet family at a beach house in North Carolina.
Virginia Lee McDonnell, 68, a former Hagerstown resident who was living in Sonora, Calif., died at the scene of the accident, her brother, William Spigler of Waynesboro, Pa., said Friday.
McDonnell's sister, Janet Racine, formerly of Maugansville, also was in the accident and remains in a coma at a hospital in Savannah, Ga., Spigler said. Racine also has pneumonia, he said.
A third sister, Joanne O'Brien, also was injured, but should be able to return to her home in California next week, Spigler said. O'Brien, who is a nurse, will be hospitalized again once she arrives in California, he said.
