A woman killed in a head-on collision Thursday afternoon on Route 222 in Strasburg Township has been identified.
She was Eva Kunkle, 78, of New Providence, Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni said after an autopsy Friday.
The accident occurred at about 3:45 p.m. on Beaver Valley Pike (Route 222) near White Oak Road.
According to a press release Friday from state police, Phong Chadd Pham, 23, of Lancaster, was driving south on 222 and Kunkle was driving north. Pham crossed the center line while rounding a curve and crashed head-on into Kunkle's car.
Pham sustained serious injuries. He was wearing a seatbelt, police said.
Lancaster County-wide Communications reported entrapment and injuries. Multiple police, fire and EMS units responded.
A helicopter — which had been en route to a large accident scene in Providence Township — was rerouted for Pham. Police dispatch reported the helicopter en route to Lancaster General Hospital at around 4:50 p.m.
Pham remains in critical condition as of 5:30 p.m. Friday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
A deputy coroner pronounced Kunkle dead at the scene, Diamantoni said. She died accidentally from multiple traumatic injuries suffered in the wreck.
Kunkle was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.
The roadway was closed for hours Thursday night, emergency dispatchers said.
