By Kim Glovas

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- One woman is dead after a two car crash just off of Woodhaven Road in the border of Northeast Philadelphia and Bensalem.

Philadelphia police say 69-year-old Gloria Szarek of the Holmesburg section of the city was killed when her car was struck by another vehicle Thursday morning.

It happened at the Woodhaven Road exit onto Knight's Road just after 11 a.m.

Police say Szarek was traveling south on Knights Road, when a second vehicle struck the driver's side door, trapping her inside.

She was removed from her car by the fire department and taken to Aria-Torresdale Hospital, where she was pronounced dead an hour later.

Two juveniles in the care suffered minor injuries.

The investigation is continuing.
