NORRISTOWN, PA – Montgomery County authorities remained tight-lipped Tuesday about their investigation into the death of an elderly woman who reportedly was struck by a bus a day earlier while walking in Lower Pottsgrove.
County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin R. Steele did not release any new details about the crash investigation, which is being handled jointly by county detectives and township police. County detectives normally take the lead role in all fatal crash investigations.
Authorities previously identified the victim as Shirley Wilhelm, 78, of Pottstown, who was struck about 7 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Mervine and North Charlotte streets. Wilhelm, reportedly on her routine morning walk, died at the scene, according to authorities.
