E. Goshen pedestrian fatality being probed

The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department is investigating a fatal accident that occurred on Sunday, Oct. 23, at 6:15 a.m.

Responding to the intersection of West Chester Pike and Waterview Road in East Goshen Township for an automobile accident involving a pedestrian, officers arrived to find a member of the Goshen Fire Company performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on an individual who had been struck by an eastbound 2008 Dodge Charger, a police press release said.

The driver of the Dodge Charger, a 26-year-old male who was not identified by police, stopped his vehicle after the accident, called for assistance, and remained at the scene. The pedestrian, Richard Crosby, 46, a resident of East Goshen Township, died as a result of injuries sustained in this accident, the release said.

Police said they are not certain where Crosby was going when the crash occurred. Preliminary evidence suggested that neither speed nor impairment were factors, police said.

The accident remains under investigation, and anyone who may have witnessed it is asked to contact the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department at 610-692-5100.

The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department was assisted at the scene by members of the Serious Crash Accident Team, a countywide group that consists of accident reconstruction experts from multiple departments, as well as the Goshen Fire Company, police said.
