Two killed in possible DUI accident in Feasterville - Philadelphia In Pictures
Two people have been pronounced dead from a violent, two vehicle accident on Street Road, near Old Street Road, in Feasterville. If that was not bad enough,cops suspect the other driver might be impaired and they are giving him tests to determine if he is intoxicated. The crash happened just after 8: p.m. March 19, 2015. According to preliminary information gathered at the scene of the wreck, a westbound SUV hit a curb and the driver over corrected. The vehicle then careened out of control , across the median and slammed head on into a Honda, which was going eastbound. That car was registered to a New Jersey address.
The force of the car, along with the speed of the vehicles caused both of them to travel into the grass median, where the SUV overturned. Fire companies scrambled to get the trapped occupants out of the car. While they were able to do a quick extrication, the blunt trauma suffered was too much. The two people in the sedan were pronounced dead before 11: p.m. At this point is is way too early to charge any one , or to say if the driver was in fact DUI. The District Attorney was on scene, as is the case of all fatal accidents in Bucks County.
Street Road, was closed from Central Avenue through Philmont Aveenue. Bucks County Fire Police from Bensalem, Southampton , and Northampton were called to help with traffic. This area is heavily traveled with several stores open and homes nearby. Most motorists were detoured at Central Avenue. The extended closure was to deal with tractor trailers and give them a safe place to turn around. Motorists that could prove they needed to go to Old Street Road were permitted to do so. The detours will remain for at least six hours after the crash.. After the investigation is complete, tow trucks must be called to clean up the mess. Due to the precarious final resting position of both vehicles, the . recovery should be an extended one. More information will become available later tomorrow.
