Clearfield, PA – A fatal crash took the life of a young Houtzdale woman and her 7-year-old son.

29-year-old Sara Shaw was reportedly driving along Main Street in Bigler Township, Clearfield County on Aug. 3 when she attempted to negotiate a left turn, lost control of the vehicle and traveled into the opposite lane where she collided with another vehicle being driven by 64-year old John Skebeck of Patton.

Shaw was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her passenger, 7-year-old Rylan Davies was taken to UPMC Altoona with life-threatening injuries where he was later pronounced dead.

Skebeck was not injured in the crash.

This and That Crafts in Ginter, PA, is holding a collection for Sara Shaw’s fiancé and Rylan’s father, Timothy Davies.

Moshannon Valley, the school where Rylan would have been a second grader at this year, will have counseling available for students after the sudden death of their classmate.

His family says he loved video games, wrestling, and being outside.
