At least one man from Ambler died last Tuesday when his motorbike had a collision with another vehicle. According to the police from Upper Dublin, the accident took place Welsh Road just at Upper Dublin Twp. along the border of Horsham Twp.
Patrol Commander of Upper Dublin police, Darren Nyce said that the driver, identified as Raja Dhoble, age 42, was operating one of three motorcycles going west on Welsh at 11:29 o’clock in the morning last July 30. It happened at the intersection of Purdie Lane and Dillon Rd. when he crashed with a Toyota Camry that was going eastbound. A chain reaction followed the collision that involved five vehicles.
At 11:31 o’clock in the morning, the police arrived and found all the three motorcyclists lying in the roadway.
Sustaining multiple injuries, Dhoble was pronounced dead at the scene while the two other operators of the motorcycles and the Camry were all taken to the Memorial Hospital of Abington for treatment of their injuries. Nyce said Dhoble wore a helmet, but the other two motorcyclists were not.
Two of the other motorcyclists were identified as John Shema, age 55, resident of Glenside, and Stephen Penhollow, age 41, resident of Ambler. According to Sgt. Dan Wade, both of them were critically injured and were confined at the Memorial Hospital of Abington.
The operator of the Camry identified as Stephen Koshy, age 44, resident of Philadelphia, was treated for minor injuries and was soon released early last Wednesday, Wade said.
Police stated that the operator of the 5th vehicle was identified as Anthony Orlando, age 40, resident of Maple Glen. He was involved in the accident in his Cadillac Escalade SUV that was also westbound on Welsh. However, he was not injured.
The accident happened when Dhoble who was operating a Kowasaki going westbound along Welsh, entered to the eastbound lane just before Dillon Rd. and immediately hit the Toyota, Wade said that they are still investigating whether it was an intentional maneuver on the part of Dhoble whether something else happened to him.
The investigation of the accident last Wednesday was taken over by the detectives of the Montgomery County but it was later turned over to the Upper Dublin police last Thursday.
D.A. Risa Vetri Ferman of the Montgomery County stated that Dhoble appeared to overtaken a car while he was escalating a hill; at this juncture, he hit a car head-on that was going along the wrong direction.
According to Wade, Dhoble might have been trying to overtake the Escalade that was running in front of him; while the other two motorcyclists were running behind him. However, the police are still reconstructing what happened during the accident.
Nyce stated that they believed the main factor of the accident was speed and alcohol. Speed and alcohol are the best reasons for an accident. But to be sure that alcohol had a role in the crash; they have to wait for the result of the toxicology test they conducted on the driver.
