2-vehicle crash closes northbound Rt. 202

On Monday, Nov. 14, the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department responded at 9:19 a.m. to a two-vehicle auto accident at the intersection of Route 202 and Stanton Avenue in Westtown Township.

Police arrived on location to find the driver of a 2000 Honda Accord trapped inside the vehicle, which suffered extensive passenger’s-side damage. The driver of the second vehicle, a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck, was out of the vehicle and reported no injuries. The driver of the Honda, once extricated, was transported to Paoli Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, a police press release said.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the Honda Accord was southbound on Route 202, also known as Wilmington Pike, and made a left turn toward Stanton Avenue into the path of the northbound Ford pickup, the release said.

Police did not identify either driver but said a 45-year-old male from Philadelphia operated the Honda while a 22-year-old male from Malvern was driving the pickup.

The accident, which remains under investigation, disrupted northbound traffic on Route 202 for about an hour, the release said. Police said that once the fire companies arrived, both northbound lanes of Route 202 had to be closed.

The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department was assisted by the West Goshen Township Police Department, First West Chester Fire Company, Fame Fire Company, Good Fellowship Ambulance, Concordville Ambulance and West Chester Fire Police, the release said.
