Intruding on the Lime Kiln Project residents’ regular evening activities was the sound of a pickup crashing into a white wall located opposite the Goodwill Day Care.
P3240, a white pickup, was parked in the centre of the road with its entire front damaged, its bonnet twisted and bent, its back window shattered and a deep sink in the bumper. The pickup was positioned east to west along the road.
According to one resident, the driver of the pickup was an elderly male and when he crashed into the wall, it appeared as though he attempted to drive away from the scene. He said it could have been that his back hit the lamp post opposite the wall when he attempted to flee the scene.
Additionally, a silver car, PA5795, was parked off the road with its entire right side severely damaged and its bumper halfway off. The car was positioned west to east along the road.
According to eyewitness account, it may have been that the pickup smashed into the car’s side and then lost control sending it straight into the wall.
Also the lamp post lights were out and there were loose wires hanging in the street.
One eyewitness said he saw the two occupants of the car, a young woman and a child, when a bus came and carried them to the hospital. He said they did not appear to have injuries. The elderly man was also taken to the hospital.
Another resident said he heard three crashing sounds and tires screeching.
Speculations claim that the driver may have been intoxicated.
