Washington County teen dies in multivehicle crash on I-68


LaVALE -- A Washington County teen-ager died and several people were injured Saturday night in a multivehicle crash on Interstate 68 in LaVale, Allegany County, state police said.

Kelly Peacher, 16, of Clear Spring was pronounced dead at the scene, said Pfc. Jack Mathew of the Maryland State Police. The two passengers in her car and the driver of one other vehicle were taken to Cumberland Memorial Hospital.

Peacher was driving west on I-68 when her 1997 Hyundai Tiburon collided with a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria. When her car came to a rest, it blocked the left lane.

A 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup struck the driver's side of Peacher's vehicle, Mathew said, and a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup then rear-ended that truck.
