The Journal Star, reporting from Banner, says the victims in Tuesday’s crash on US Route 24 have been identified. The accident scene was on Route 24, just west of Chaney Road near Banner Marsh. The time was approximately 2:40 PM.
Macomb resident Doris K. Setser, 81, was a driver in the two-vehicle crash, according to an authority at the Fulton County Coroner’s office. Setser was pronounced deceased at the accident scene.
The other driver was Lori B. Harmon, a 52 year old resident of Rushville. Her condition at this point is unknown but she was hospitalized. In addition, a dog in Harmon’s vehicle also died.
Investigators say Setser’s vehicle was proceeding westbound on Route 24 when it crossed the center line, coming into the eastbound lane. Harmon’s vehicle was traveling in the opposite direction and was consequently struck.
Multiple agencies responded to the accident and many are now helping the accident investigation.
