Woman dies more than 2 years after car crash

Lehigh County coroner rules death an accident

A Monroe County woman has died as a result of injuries she suffered in a wreck more than two years ago, according to the Lehigh County Coroner's Office.

The coroner's office announced Friday that Linda Schurawlow died Thursday at Fellowship Manor in Whitehall Township. The 68-year-old was pronounced dead shortly before 5 a.m.

Her cause of death has been attributed to complications from head injuries she sustained in a car crash in September 2015. The coroner ruled the death accidental.

Schurawlow, of the Brodheadsville area of Chestnuthill Township, was the passenger in a vehicle that struck a tree in the 1300 block of Route 209 in Chestnuthill Township on Sept. 29, 2015.

The incident was investigated by the coroner's office and Pennsylvania State Police with the Fern Ridge barracks.
