A Saturday morning auto accident resulted in one individual being killed and six others sustaining injuries. The accident happened in Erie, Pennsylvania. According to authorities, 26-year-old Galina Sus was operating her car southbound on Bayfront Parkway when she collided head-on with a pickup truck. It is believed that Sus sideswiped a guardrail that then pushed the vehicle into oncoming traffic. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident and six occupants in the truck were all transported to the hospital by ambulances. Their current condition is unknown, and police are continuing to investigate the crash.
