Gina C. Johnson, 33, of Media, manager of the Starbucks store at 10th and Chestnut Streets, died in a one-car crash near Greensboro, N.C.
Ms. Johnson was a passenger and one of three people in the car who died in the accident on I-85, the Greensboro News & Record reported.
The rented van was traveling north in the left lane after 11 p.m. when it approached a curve to the right, police told the newspaper. The van "went straight and off the road," the newspaper reported, became airborne, flew 98 feet over a grassy median, and landed on the northbound lane of U.S. 29-70, which runs beneath the interstate. It then flipped and caught fire.
A 1993 graduate of Penncrest High School, Ms. Johnson graduated from Shippensburg University in 1997.
For about seven years before joining Starbucks, she was a banquet manager for Spirit of Philadelphia, a sightseeing ship on the Delaware River.
Through the volunteer organization Philadelphia Cares, Ms. Johnson was a mentor to underprivileged children, said her mother, Deborah Margulies.
