Tuesday wreck victim identified
The victim in a fatal car crash Tuesday afternoon on Main Street near McClain-Hays has been identified as a Philadelphia woman, authorities say.
The victim has been identified as Laquinta Lasha Renee Bonds, 38, of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Police Chief Eric Lyons said. He said she was pronounced dead at the scene and investigators are awaiting autopsy results.
“An autopsy is currently being done at the state crime lab,’ Lyons said. “Although the accident itself did not appear to be significant it is possible that bonds suffered a medical episode prior to the actual collision.”
He went on to say, “We will have a more clear answer after the autopsy is complete as far as cause of death.”
According to Lyons, Bonds was involved in a two-vehicle accident on Main Street near McClain-Hays around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31. One vehicle left the roadway and came to a rest in a wooded area behind Family Dollar, Lyons said.
Lyons said the vehicle came to rest almost 200 yards from where the original wreck took place.
Lyons said no further injuries have been reported from the incident.
