One dies in Friday night Clearfield crash on 322

A Woodland woman died Friday night after a crash on U.S. Route 322 in Decatur Township, Clearfield County.

State police at Clearfield say the crash happened when 62-year-old Joyce Dixon, driving east in a 1998 Jeep Cherokee, hit a deer that ran into the road from the south berm around 9:40 p.m.

Dixon's Cherokee crossed into the oncoming westbound lane and hit a Ford F-150 head on. Her vehicle then went off the north side of the road and down an embankment, where it stopped.

The truck was driven by 28-year-old Adam Lamb, of Houtzdale. He and his passenger, 23-year-old Carla Dillen, had minor injuries.

Dixon was pronounced dead at the scene by Clearfield County deputy coroner Michael Polachek.

Hope and Reliance Fire companies assisted Moshannon Valley emergency medical services, and Penn DOT.
