Infant dies days after 3-car crash

An infant injured in a Labor Day crash in Lenox Twp. died Thursday.

Montour County Coroner Scott Lynn said 6-month-old Laney Johnson died at Janet Weis Children’s Hospital pediatric intensive care unit in Danville as a result of head trauma suffered in the crash.

Laney was a passenger in an SUV involved in a three-vehicle crash on Route 92 around 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2.

A pickup truck with two male passengers was traveling south when police said the vehicle crossed over the double yellow lines for unknown reasons and struck a Ford Edge SUV and a Volkswagen Jetta, both traveling north on the roadway.

All of the people involved in the crash were taken to either UHS Wilson Medical Center in New York or Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton.
Laney was later transported by ambulance to Danville.

The other names and conditions of people involved in the crash have not yet been released by police.
