I suppose this should not really be a great surprise for anyone but the Mercury’s condensed version of the Lebanon Daily News coverage of an accident on Route 322 in South Annville Township, that involved a Pottstown woman, has some key facts missing.
What the Mercury fails to point out is:
“Burton’s vehicle was pushed into the eastbound lane when it was struck from the rear by a Chevy Equinox driven by Amber Dumond, 32, of 117 E. Cherry St., Palmyra, he said.” The quote is from South Annville Township Police Chief Ben Sutcliffe
The Mercury tells us Burton’s children were in the car at the time of the accident. According to the Lebanon Daily News “Burton’s front-seat passenger was Elizabeth Hain, 36, also of Pottstown, Sutcliffe said. She was released after treatment at the hospital. In the back seat were Hain’s children, Dharia, 13, and Delanie, 7. Both were listed in fair condition at HMC, a hospital spokesman said.”
Here is the entire Lebanon Daily News article for you to read and get the correct information. A friend of Faith Burton’s brought this to my attention so we here in Pottstown have the correct information regarding this tragic event.
