Pennsylvania Woman Killed In Tioga County Crash: Gas Drilling Truck Driver At Fault

A tanker truck hauling water for natural gas drilling reportedly rear-ended a car Saturday in Putnam Township, killing a 74-year-old Lock Haven woman who was wearing her seat belt.  There have been many reports from many areas of gas drillers driving huge trucks unsafely.  Though this is considered an accident,  how many more private citizens will be injured or killed by these big gas trucks?  My sincere condolences to the family of this woman who was probably someone's grandmother.

I live in Bradford County and I do not think this accident was ever published in our local newspaper, The Daily Review, unless I missed it. It should have been published though. It seems like water trucks are the primary vehicle traveling our roads these days. It's probably wishful thinking to hope this type of accident does not happen here. Thanks for your blog. It is the most comprehensive source that we have available right now for what is really happening to our land and our future here in the Northern Tier. The Daily Review or Wyalusing Rocket should link your blog off their websites , it would be a great service to their readers. Thanks again for all the work you are doing here.
