Two teenagers injured in Norriton automobile accidentDecember 14th, 2012 by Gabriel Z. Levin
Two Pennsylvania teenagers were sent to the hospital just before midnight on Wednesday, December 12. They were involved in a one-car automobile accident that took place in West Norriton. According to state news sources such as The Times Herald, the owner of a red Volkswagen and his female passenger were driving along the 700 block of Port Indian Road when the driver allegedly swerved off the street to avoid hitting a deer that jumped out in front of the car.
When officers arrived at the scene of the accident, they noticed that the Volkswagen had rolled over. Authorities believe that the car hit a grassy mound before colliding into a tree. Although the two teenagers were responsive when they were questioned by investigators, police believe the driver and passenger may have been consuming alcohol, which could have impaired their judgement and driving abilities.
The owner of the vehicle said that he was wearing his safety belt. He was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he received medical treatment for injuries to his head and shoulder, as well as ankle pain.
The female passenger who also declared she was wearing her seatbelt was transported to Paoli Hospital where doctors treated hip, hand and chin injuries she endured. No word has been released as to what the teens' current condition is.
