VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - The Ventura County Medical Examiner's office says a Ventura woman impaled by a metal pole after a dramatic car accident died from her injuries.
Armando Chavez, a senior deputy with the Medical Examiner's office, says Louise Nemerson was rushed to Ventura County Medical Center where she died during surgery on Thursday.
Police say Nemerson's sports utility vehicle collided with another vehicle, went over the center median into opposing lanes of traffic. Nemerson went down an embankment and crashed through a chain-link fence where she was impaled by a metal pole.
Nemerson worked part time at Ventura College at the student health center.
