A Warfordsburg woman was killed in a crash on November 10 on Buck Valley Road in Warfordsburg.

Police said at some point during the crash after dark, Bohrer was partially ejected through the passenger side window. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, around 7:30 p.m. on November 10, Keshia Bohrer, 29, was driving a 2004 Mazda Mazdaspeed6 west on Buck Valley Road near the intersection with Fairview Road.

Police said Bohrer failed to negotiate a left-hand turn in the roadway. She then traveled into the eastbound travel lane, back into the westbound lane and then onto the westbound berm.

The car then struck a utility pole located a little over six feet off the berm of the road with initial impact occurring on the front passenger side bumper.

After the initial point of impact, Bohrer’s car continued northwest about 10 feet and struck a guide wire attached to the utility pole.

Police said the second point of impact occurred as the car’s front bumper struck the guide wire with the vehicle continuing northwest, rotating in a clockwise motion about 90 degrees.

The car traveled just over 72 feet through the yard of a residence in the 110 block of Fairview Road before striking a tree in the yard with the driver side door.

After impact with the tree, the car began traveling west while rotating clockwise and beginning to overturn multiple times before coming to rest on its roof while rotating clockwise about 360 degrees and coming to rest in the west bound lane of Buck Valley Road.

Allegheny County Fire and EMS from Maryland, Cpl. Barnett, and Trooper Hibner assisted at the scene.
