Woman Critical After Major Crash on Germantown Pike
An SUV ran a light and struck a sedan.
Plymouth Police say they’re nearly done clearing the scene of a two car accident on the corner of Germantown Pike and Launfall Road that’s left one driver critically injured.
According to an officer on the scene, at 2:30 p.m. a black GMC SUV appears to have run a light while headed eastbound on Germantown Pike, and smashed into the side of a silver Chrysler Sebring that was crossing the intersection by way of Launfall Road.
The driver of the Chrysler—a woman in her late-40s—was critically injured in the accident, and after being freed from her car by Plymouth and Harmonville fire personnel by way of the "jaws of life," she was taken by helicopter to the University of Pennsylvania. The driver of the GMC, also a middle-aged woman, sustained minor injuries, and is being treated at Abbington Hospital.
As of 4:45 p.m., Plymouth Police were still in the process of clearing the vehicles and reconstructing the scene for later analysis. They estimated at this time that Germantown Pike would be clear in 15 minutes.
Neither drug or alcohol use are suspected as contributors to the accident.
