A fatal crash on I-81 in Southampton Township, Franklin County, late last night claimed the life of a 42-year-old Virginia woman and injured her 12-year-old passenger.

The woman died at the scene of the 11:57 p.m. crash, according to a Pennsylvania State Police news release.

The car carrying the woman and her passenger crashed into the rear end of an 18-wheeler stopped in traffic in the right northbound lane at mile-marker 24, police said.

The 12-year-old was taken to a hospital with injuries she suffered in the crash. The driver of the big rig, a 40-year-old man from Scottsdale,Pa., was uninjured.

Police did not release names of either driver, or the injured 12-year-old.

Shippensburg’s West End Fire and Rescue Company responded to the call at 11:59 p.m. A post on the company’s Facebook page said the call involved an entrapment.
