Lower Southampton police said Breslin was driving her Dodge Durango eastbound in the 300 block of County Line Road when she drove into the opposite lane and struck a Nissan Rogue driven by Linder about 5:50 p.m.

Breslin crossed over the turning lane and went into westbound traffic, according to court documents. One vehicle managed to move out of the way before she struck Linder's vehicle, police said.

Linder, 87, was taken to Abington Hospital, where he later died from his injuries, charging documents state.

Both vehicles involved in the crash were inspected, according to police, who said no defects were found in either that would have contributed to the crash.

Investigators found Breslin was going 48 mph when she crashed into Linder's vehicle, court documents state. Police said she did not brake prior to the crash.

Breslin's preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 22. She did not have an attorney listed for her Tuesday.
