A 26-year-old Grand Island woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash Thursday morning when her vehicle crossed the center line and collided with an oncoming vehicle in Pennsylvania, just south of the New York State line, Pennsylvania State Police reported.

Lindsay M. Schmit was pronounced dead at the scene by the McKean County coroner, following the crash that occurred at about 6:15 a.m. Thursday, on Route 446 near the state line.

One of her two passengers, Christopher Johnston, 23, her fiancé, was first taken to Olean General Hospital and then transferred to Erie County Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition Friday night.

The other passenger, a 2-year-old boy whose name was not released, remained in the Olean hospital with what were described as severe injuries. None of the three occupants of Schmit’s vehicle was wearing a seat belt, according to the police report.

The other driver claimed to have no injuries. Both lanes of Route 446 were closed for about 10 hours, following the crash.
