Car crash kills Pennsylvania state senator, 66

By MARC LEVY – 7 hours ago

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A longtime Pennsylvania state senator has died after his Cadillac collided head-on with a truck.

Legislative leaders say Sen. James Rhoades died Saturday. He and his wife, Mary, were taken to a hospital after the crash Friday.

Senate aides say Mary Rhoades' injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. The accident is being investigated.

The 66-year-old Republican had served for seven terms and was chairman of the Education Committee. He was campaigning for an eighth term.

A Senate Republican spokesman says the party would have to get a court's permission to remove Rhoades' name from the ballot and replace him.

He started in the Senate in 1981 and represents northeastern Pennsylvania's coal country.

Governor Edward G. Rendell (D) today issued the following statement upon learning the news that state Sen. James J. Rhoades (R) died today from injuries suffered last night in an automobile accident:

Quote
"Jim's passing is a tremendous loss for Pennsylvania. He was a great person and a tremendous fighter for school children in the commonwealth. No one cared more about advancing education in Pennsylvania than Jim. He will be missed.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim's family, especially his wife, Mary Edith, who was riding in the car when the accident happened."
