County Detectives, Police Investigate Fatal Crash

NORRISTOWN PA – A crash Thursday (Aug. 25, 2022) that killed 31-year-old Kellie Adams of Lansdale and her baby girl, Emersyn Grace Adams, who was stillborn following the accident, is being investigated by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office and Lower Providence Township police, District Attorney Kevin Steele said Monday (Aug. 29).

Adams was the wife of Upper Providence Township firefighter Jason Adams, the fire department confirmed in a Facebook post that asked the public for prayers for the family. Hundreds of readers responded with an outpouring of condolences.

“This is a tragic loss of life of a young mother, pregnant with her third child,” Steele said. “Our hearts and prayers go out the family at this very difficult time.”

The two-vehicle crash occurred Thursday just before 3 p.m. in the 500 block of South Park Avenue, to which Lower Providence police responded. They arrived to find that a head-on collision occurred involving Adams’ 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and a 2003 Ford F650 XLT Super Duty dump-body truck. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the dump truck was not injured.

The investigation is expected to take several weeks, Steele indicated. It is being conducted by the police department, the Montgomery County Detective Bureau, and members of the Regional Crash Reconstruction Team.
