UPDATE: Police say husband injured in crash has died
POINT TOWNSHIP — Police here said a third person has died as a result of Friday's three-vehicle crash along Route 11.
Derl Kieffer, 83, of Dornsife, died at 11 a.m. Saturday at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, police reported. His wife, Faye, 85, died at the scene of Friday's 10:52 a.m. crash five miles north of Northumberland.
Police said the driver of a van that crashed into the Kieffers' vehicle may have been suffering a medical emergency that led to the crash.
Jeffrey Robinson, 60, of Northumberland, was by himself when his southbound green 1998 Ford Windstar van crossed into the northbound lanes of Route 11 and crashed head-on into the Kieffers' 2005 silver Ford Taurus. Robinson was pronounced dead later at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
Police reported Saturday the possibility of a medical situation for Robinson, but offered no further details on the subject.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Route 11 and Ridge Road.
Robinson’s vehicle landed off the highway, upsidedown on adjacent railroad tracks.
Route 11 was closed in both directions for most of the afternoon while police reconstructed the scene. Route 11 north of Northumberland reopened for traffic at 2:20 p.m., PennDOT reported.
