An autopsy will be conducted today on a woman who died after being involved in two separate but related traffic crashes Friday night.
34-year-old Amanda Poole had been driving a car that was struck by a pickup truck at South Dirksen and Niccolls Road.
After she was extricated from her vehicle, she was being taken by ambulance to the hospital… when the ambulance collided head-on with an SUV at Dirksen and Clear Lake.
Poole died later that night at the hospital. Several other people were hurt in those two collisions.
