Two are injured in Route 202 crash


A man and a woman were seriously injured when their car ran off the road Tuesday and became airborne, landing along a patio wall, Solebury Township Police said.

Officers responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash with injuries off Route 202 near Silver Tail Lane at 11:50 a.m. March 19. On arrival, officers located a 2012 Mercedes sedan in the rear yard of a house on the 200 block of Bobwhite Road in Fox Run Preserve.

Both the 57-year-old male driver, of New Hope, and 79-year-old female passenger, of Stockton, N.J., sustained serious injuries, police said.
