Officials investigating a fatal crash in West Middlesex say the victim in the collision was a former Franklin woman, who had most recently lived in the Stoneboro area.

38 year-old Mairi Smith was pronounced dead following the crash on Main Street in West Middlesex shortly after 5:30 AM Thursday morning.

Troopers say Smith apparently had trouble maneuvering her pickup during a snowstorm.  Her vehicle slammed head-on into an oncoming vehicle driven by 54 year-old Wendy Weiser, from West Middlesex.

Smith was ejected from her truck, and landed on the street.  Weiser was taken to a Mercer County hospital for treatment of chest and leg injuries.
