Whether one or more motorists are involved, motor vehicle accidents tend to result in a plethora of injuries more often than not. Today in Port Richmond, a man veered off the highway and crashed into a guardrail, rolling his vehicle down onto Wheatsheaf Lane. With both the driver of the vehicle and the passenger being ejected during the crash, it is not surprising that one man died and one is currently suffering from serious injuries.
Police say that speeding was the most likely cause of the accident that occurred around 3:40 this morning. The 21-year-old victim of the crash was pronounced dead at the scene, leaving only a 26-year-old man still alive. The survivor was transported to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital via ambulance, and the total extent of his injuries still remains unknown.
