Jenny Calhoun, of Ohio, was driving north in a 2015 Dodge Dart and approaching an area of slowed traffic behind a Dodge pickup truck driven by Alicia Jabrowski, of Indiana, according to Trooper Dackery Larkey, a KSP traffic crash re-constructionist.
Philip Terry, of Tennessee, who was driving a 2018 KIA directly behind Calhoun, was unable to stop for the area of slowed traffic, and his vehicle struck the Dodge Dart from behind, Larkey determined.
That vehicle was knocked into the backend of Jabrowski’s Dodge, killing Calhoun, who was a passenger, officials said.
