NEEDMORE, PA. -- A 65-year-old Needmore woman died Wednesday after her vehicle was struck head-on on U.S. 522 as she turned into a Needmore ice cream shop, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Alice Williams was airlifted to Altoona (Pa.) Hospital along with her 11-year-old passenger, but she died before reaching the hospital, Trooper Ryan Cohen said.

Williams was driving north on U.S. 522 in a Chevrolet Cavalier when she attempted to make a left turn into the Gordon's Ice Cream parking lot, just south of Pa. 655, at about 6:50 p.m., Cohen said. She turned directly in front of a Ford F-150 pickup truck that was driving south on U.S. 522, and the pickup struck the Cavalier, Cohen said.

The driver of the truck, Randel Hess, 55, of Chambersburg, Pa., and his wife, who was a passenger, were taken by ambulance to Fulton County Medical Center with moderate injuries, Cohen said.

The 11-year-old boy also had moderate injuries, Cohen said.

Cohen did not know whether Williams was wearing a seat belt.

Cohen said Hess was not at fault and no charges will be filed.
