CLARION — A 64-year-old Kossuth woman whom Clarion state police said fatally struck an Amish buggy driver with her vehicle in Elk Township on Tuesday evening also, according to court records, fatally struck a pedestrian with her vehicle in Clarion Borough in 2001.

According to police, Pamela J. Raybuck fatally struck 39-year-old David Coblentz, of Shippenville, along U.S. Route 322 in Elk Township at 5:33 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said Coblentz was driving a horse-drawn, two-wheeled buggy when he was struck from behind by Raybuck’s 2015 Buick Enclave.

Police said the buggy was pushed “quite some distance” before the horse and the buggy traveled over the top of the Enclave.

Raybuck was wearing a seat belt and was not injured, police said.

Clarion County Coroner David Shingledecker pronounced Coblentz dead at the scene. The horse also was killed in the crash.

The police investigation in that crash continues.

In late 2001, Raybuck, then 46, was traveling along Main Street in Clarion Borough when she fatally struck William F. Woodley, 66, of Clarion, while he was in a crosswalk attempting to cross Main Street at the intersection with Keatley Place, according to court records.

That incident, court records said, took place at 7:57 p.m. on Nov. 1, 2001.

Raybuck, court records said, was charged with homicide by vehicle as a third-degree felony and other charges in March 2002 stemming from that incident.

According to court records, Raybuck eventually pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, a first-degree misdemeanor, and reckless endangerment of another person, a second-degree misdemeanor. She was sentenced to time served and a $1,483 fine.
