Another emergency airlift saved the life of a man from Warwick. After a car accident, he was immediately airlifted to the hospital and doctors found that he had severe injuries. It was a Saturday morning after a minivan where he was a passenger in crashed on Route 152 in Hilltown. This information was supplied by the police.
The victim was identified as David Shelley, 53, from Warwick. According to Hilltown Officer Jerry Fish, Shelley was the passenger in the vehicle being driven by his 16-year-old daughter, who has her learner’s permit.
Along the way, the teen lost control of the minivan and it ended up in a deep ditch. The right side of the vehicle hit a large tree, reported Fish.
Since her father was seated on the right side, he sustained severe injuries to his right side, mainly his arm. He was flown by helicopter to Temple University Hospital, where he was still in the emergency room as of Saturday afternoon. His daughter was not injured.
Father and daughter were on their way to attend sport try-outs at Pennridge High School, where the teen was a student.
The accident is under investigation, said Fish. It was not revealed if both were wearing seatbelts. The authority is trying to find out if charges will be filed against the young girl. The teen had a learner’s license and she was driving at the proper speed. More details will be given out to the media pending investigation.
