VOORHEESVILLE, N.Y. — A memorial will be held today for the three women who were killed last summer when they were struck and killed by a minivan while standing in front of a church in Voorheesville.
Carol Lansing, Rose Marie Hume, and Fran Pallozzi were killed on August 10th of last year outside Saint Matthew’s Church while they were waiting to go on a guided walk with the group. Police say Luann Burgess lost control of her minivan going 46 miles per hour when she hit the women. She says her flip flop got lodged under the gas pedal.
Burgess was charged with nine counts last week, including aggravated vehicular homicide, criminally negligent homicide, driving while ability impaired, reckless driving and speeding. Toxicology results showed Burgess was taking three prescription medications for Parkinson’s disease at the time of the crash.
