Police reported that a 21-year-old Jeffrey Bender resident from Perkasie was critically injured in a two-car collision a few minutes after 10:00 o’clock Saturday evening in TWP of Doylestown.
Preliminary investigation considered speed as the prime factor for the crash but authorities were not able to inquire if the two cars were having a race, said Carlen.
Bender had two passengers in his Dodge Neon, who were both injured and delivered to the trauma center of Memorial Hospital in Abington. Bender was critically injured and had to undergo a surgery in the center.
The teen driver of the Subaru Impreza was also traveling with two passengers in the car. They were also transported to the hospital. After a day, everyone, except Bender was treated and released from the hospital.
The crash happened just 500 feet away but on exactly stretch of road that a crash claimed the life of 9-year-old Holly Huynh last November.
Carlen said that speed kills; it is one of the most treacherous killers in the road. He confirmed that two cars had a collision as they were both traveling at high speed that resulted to injuries of both drivers and their passengers.
Investigators observed that the preliminary analysis of the skid marks of the cars that Saturday night was traveling more than a speed of 100 MPH in an area where only a 55 MPH speed limit is allowable.
The crash area was closed for traffic until it was reopened Sunday noon. Carlen added that he said he does not believe alcohol played a role in the collision.
Doylestown police is continuing their investigation of the crash.
