October 20, 2017

LAKE TWP. — A 2-year-old injured in a crash Tuesday is expected to recover.

The child was flown to the Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown and will be released soon, according to state police at Honesdale.

The 2-year-old’s mother, Tiffany Koerner, 25, died from multiple traumatic injuries sustained in the crash, said Wayne County Coroner Edward R. Howell, who ruled her death accidental. The vehicle Koerner rode in failed to yield at Tisdel Road and Lake Ariel Highway and was struck by a triaxle dump truck.

The driver of the vehicle, who police identified as a man in his 20s, is also expected to recover, police said. Koerner’s 7-year-old daughter — also involved in the crash — sustained minor injuries.

Police are still investigating the wreck.
