BREAKING: Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident on East 2nd Street in Coudersport

Coudersport Dept. 48 dispatched

Update: Unconfirmed reports indicate that this accident may not have been a hit-and-run accident at all. While initial dispatches indicated the vehicle had fled the scene of the accident without slowing, witnesses tell CoudyNews that the vehicle involved, driven by a male, stopped near the Consistory and Ambulance Hall to call 911. This is however, contradictory to witness accounts at the scene, which corroborated the hit-and-run report by indicating that another driver had come upon the accident and discovered the victims. Sadly, we have also received word that the victims of this accident; a mother and daughter, were severely injured. An emergency transfer from Charles Cole Memorial Hospital to Geisinger Medical Center was dispatched, although it’s relation in regards to the victims of this accident is unknown.

Update: 7:00 pm Authorities have re -opened Route 6.

Raw video of the scene can be viewed here.

    This is so sad. My heart breaks to think of this young girl. What if this was one of my children? I cannot imagine. A terrible tragedy.

    Please let this little girl be okay. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    There was a mom and daughter in this accident. The mom will be okay but was hurt pretty badly. The girl isn’t doing very well. She is in a coma and has had brain surgery.

    I don’t know about the details of the accident, just praying that this girl will be okay.

    Deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers :'(
