Mo­torist killed in crash

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - THE MERCURY - By Pete Ban­nan

A mo­torist was killed in a Mon­day morn­ing crash on Route 41 (Gap New­port Pike) and Friend­ship Church Road.

Ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials at the scene, a Volk­swa­gen Jetta re­port­edly col­lided with a Toy­ota Ma­trix at that in­ter­sec­tion, killing the driver of the Volk­swa­gen.

A truck driver headed north on Route 41, who did not wish to be iden­ti­fied, said he was fol­low­ing the Jetta when he saw the Toy­ota pull out from the right on Friend­ship Church Road, slow to a near stop, then pull out onto the high­way in front of the Jetta.

Skid marks could be seen on the road­way near where the Jetta came to a rest. The Toy­ota came to a stop a cou­ple hun­dred feet to the north.

Cochranville Fire Com­pany, Chris­tiana Am­bu­lance, along with South­ern Ch­ester County Paramedics, re­sponded to the crash be­fore 11 a.m.

Ra­dio re­ports in­di­cated that pass­ing fire­fight­ers stopped to ren­der aid, in­clud­ing CPR, how­ever the vic­tim was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

The iden­tity of the de­ceased was not re­leased.

The sec­ond driver was treated by Brandy­wine Hos­pi­tal Medics and Key­stone Val­ley Am­bu­lance. The con­di­tion of the sec­ond driver was un­known.

The Ma­jor Ac­ci­dent Re­con­struc­tion Team had Route 41 closed into the af­ter­noon as it in­ves­ti­gated the cause of the crash.
