A 65-year-old Hallstead woman died of injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash on Tuesday, around 6 p.m.

State police at Gibson confirmed that Betty Tinsley was involved in the crash along Rt. 11, about a half mile south of the baseball field below Hallstead.

Her son, Tim Mattocks of Lake Carey, confirmed Thursday that she was transported by ambulance to Wilson Hospital in Johnson City, N.Y., where she died Wednesday morning from internal injuries.

Tpr. Enrico Pascolini of the State Police Gibson barracks investigated, but no further information was available from the barracks Tuesday morning.

A funeral for Tinsley, a Tunkhannock native, took place Monday morning. Arrangements were handled by the Sheldon-Kukuchka Funeral Home of Tunkhannock.
