Wanda Matuszak Obituary, Death – Many people living in Berks County are in a state of despair as a result of a horrible accident that involved multiple vehicles. After their vehicle was involved in an accident near Fleetwood in Ruscombmanor Township, a Reading Hospital nurse was tragically killed and three other persons were injured. On Monday morning, around the time that the clock struck 6:30 a.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to the 3600 block of Pricetown Road in response to a collision that involved four automobiles. First responders located Wanda Matuszak, 61 years old, a resident of Fleetwood, and discovered that she had passed tragically at the scene of the accident.
Prior to the collision, multiple witnesses reported to the Pennsylvania State Police that they saw a white van traveling east on Pricetown Road at a high rate of speed and passing cars in an area that was clearly marked as a no-passing zone. These witnesses also stated that the van was traveling in the same direction as the other vehicle that was involved in the collision. The Pennsylvania State Police were the ones who handed over this material to the local authorities. The driver of that van, which was one of the four vehicles that were involved, is currently being treated at Reading Hospital and is in a critical condition.
The accident included four automobiles. Two additional motorists who were involved in the collision also sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident. Diane Conrad, who lives on Pricetown Road, states that she heard the crash and came outside, where she noticed a number of autos stopped in front of her house near the intersection of Glenview Drive. Conrad resides on the same street as Glenview Drive. She asserts that Pricetown Road has a well-deserved reputation for having a high speed limit. She made the statement that the road was in terrible shape. It may take me up to five minutes, depending on the configuration of the traffic signals, to get out onto the road when I leave for work at 6:30 in the morning.
In a statement, Reading Hospital’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Charles F. Barbera, said, “Everyone at Tower Health–Reading Hospital is heartbroken to learn of the passing of our long-time colleague and friend, Wanda Matuszak.” “she was deeply committed to her patients and generally renowned for her skill and compassion,” Barbera is reported to have said of her. We would like her family and friends to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers as they go through this trying time together with her. According to the state police, the inquiry is still active at this time.
