Suspected driver flees scene of fatal crash in Pottstown

A crash in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, earlier this month has left two people dead and a third critically injured. Police have not apprehended the suspected driver who may have caused the fatal car accident. According a report released by the Montgomery County district attorney and the Pottstown police chief, the 27-year-old suspect has been charged with three counts of accident involving death and personal injury as well as accident involving death and personal injury while not properly licensed.

He has also been charged with one count each of driver required to be licensed and driving while suspended, which is DUI related. Reports indicate that the driver was involved in the crash and left the scene without providing any information to law enforcement.

According to the report, authorities arrived at the scene of the crash, about 40 miles outside of Philadelphia, at around 11:29 p.m. Police found a 15-year-old female lying in the road with no signs of life. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities discovered a heavily damaged Lincoln Continental in an alley near the scene. Two males were found outside of the vehicle, 28 and 16. All three of the individuals were from Pottstown.

The two males were taken to separate hospitals for treatment. The older male was pronounced dead, while the younger male was in critical condition with head trauma and internal injuries.

Police believe that two males removed the individuals from the vehicle before leaving the scene. Authorities suspect that one of those men is the suspected driver. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Bureau of Driver Licensing, the driver's license had been suspended in connection with a DUI offense from April 2011.

The investigation is ongoing and the police are asking for the public's help in finding the suspect. If convicted of his charges, he could receive a lengthy prison sentence. It's important that he's found so the victims' families are able to try and hold him accountable for his actions.
