Two people were hospitalized following a head-on collision on Pickertown Road between Argyle and Blue Bell lanes in Warrington Township Wednesday, July 10, township police said.
Police are investigating the 8 a.m. crash that sent both drivers to Abington Hospital and both vehicles onto the front lawn of a residential property.
Warrington Police Chief Daniel J. Friel said Gabrielle Houtras, 31, of Warrington, was westbound on Pickertown Road in a Chevrolet Trailblazer, and David Case, 57, of Lansdale, was eastbound on Pickertown Road in a Toyota Pruis when they collided.
He said Houtras suffered a head injury but was awake and talking. He said Case suffered several fractures, including to his ribs, ankle and foot.
Warrington Fire Company and Warrington Ambulance were on location at the accident scene with Warrington Police.
One driver had to be extricated from the vehicle using the “Jaws of Life.” Peco was called to the scene because there were live electrical wires on the ground.
Friel said police are investigating the account of one witness who said the SUV may have gone off the side of the road briefly and come back into the oncoming lane.
Police are asking any witnesses to the crash to call Officer Eric Sanford at 215-343-3311 or send them an alert through their CrimeWatch site.
