Pennsylvania Auto Accident Leaves One Dead And Four Injured

May 24, 2012

Action 6 News indicates that a car accident happened Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. at the corner of Upper Gulph and Fletcher Roads in Tredyffrin Township.

Police say that the 25-year-old driver and his 23-year-old passenger were riding in a 2005 Mercedes Benz CLK 500 sedan along Gulph Road when the driver lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road. The car then struck a tree, which ignited an engine fire. The impact of the collision caused both passengers to be ejected from the vehicle, leading to injuries that required the men to be airlifted to a local hospital to receive treatment.

Then, at 7:00 a.m., another accident occurred along Route 29, outside Charlestown, Pennsylvania. A Ford Explorer was struck on the driver’s side by another vehicle, leaving one passenger dead and two others seriously injured. The victims were then taken to a local hospital. In the meantime, state police say that they will continue to investigate what may have been contributing factors in both crashes, including alcohol and speed.
