A Dingmans Ferry woman was killed in a one-car accident on Route 739 Saturday morning.

PA State Police Trooper Brian C. Roberts report Lorrie Lynn Pacich, 42, was killed at 2:25 am, Oct. 11, when she lost control of her car and hit a tree. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Pike County Coroner Kevin Stroyan.

Trooper Roberts said Pacich was heading south on Route 739 in a 1998 Jeep Cherokee when the vehicle went off the right side of the road as it was negotiating a left curve.

Pacich then overcorrected, causing her Cherokee to cross over both lanes and leave the left side of the road where it struck a tree at a high rate of speed, Roberts reported.

No one else was in the vehicle at the time of the accident.
