David Smith, 53, died of his injuries, while the second worker who was struck, 46-year-old Jeffrey Moyer, was seriously injured, District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said in a news release.

Prosecutors say Stock told police she reached to grab something, and when she looked up she had two men on her windshield.

According to the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, Luciana Stock, 20, of Souderton, was driving westbound in her 2000 Oldsmobile Alero when she drove over an orange cone and struck Moyer and Smith traveling at approximately 39 miles per hour. Stock was driving about 39 miles per hour on West Broad Street when she drove over an orange cone and hit the workers around 2:30 p.m., police say. Smith was transported to Grand View Hospital in Sellersville, where he was pronounced dead. The work zone had orange cones and flashing lights to warn motorists to a construction project, they said.

It occurred about 2 p.m. on West Broad Street in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, outside Souderton, authorities said.

Stock said she did not see anything in the roadway before she reached down and that she tried to brake, but it was too late, according to the affidavit.

Stock was arraigned last week before Magisterial District Judge Philip J. Daly, who set bail at $75,000 unsecured.

Authorities say Luciana Stock also is charged with aggravated assault by vehicle, careless and reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Her preliminary hearing was set for November 30.
