Driver with suspended license charged in accident

Charges have been made in an accident that occurred on Sept. 14 in Catasauqua, Pennsylvania. According to reports, a man from Bethlehem Township, Pennsylvania, was accused of several crimes stemming from the car crash that happened earlier this year.

Authorities have stated that the accused man was driving with a suspended license on the day of the accident. Behind the wheel of a Chevrolet C35, the man reportedly swerved into oncoming traffic unexpectedly and collided with a Honda CR-V in the 600 block of Race Street. The second vehicle then struck a man loading a vehicle with items. That pedestrian is from Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania.

Records indicate that the pedestrian was lying in the middle of Race Street when police arrived. The C35 had struck a utility pole, where it remained after colliding with the Honda. Police reports show that witnesses saw the Chevy cross into oncoming traffic, indicating that any fault is on the man in the truck. According to records, the man's license had been suspended since late March and continues to be so. He has been charged with reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and a felony count of accidents involving injury or death while not properly licensed.

According to reports, the resident of Bethlehem Township lives in the 2700 block of Old Farmersville Road. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for this month and was released on $25,000 unsecured bail. His arraignment occurred earlier this month. The cause of the crash was not clear.

The condition of the pedestrian who was struck in the accident is not clear. No reports or records indicated how severe his injuries were and whether he has since recovered from them or not. If he was seriously hurt, he may be able to hold the driver accountable for his injuries and their associated financial, physical and emotional costs.
