SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove and Limerick police searched a heavily wooded area off Linfield Road for more than an hour Wednesday (May 27, 2015), but did not find an East Pikeland PA man whom they allege fled the scene of a serious accident (above) that occurred on the road near the H&K Sanatoga Quarry at about 6:43 p.m. Two people were injured, and charges are pending.
Lower Pottsgrove Sgt. Robert Greenwood reported police are looking for Quincy Scott Marks, 24, of East Pikeland. They claim he ran from the accident site on foot before first responders arrived. A K-9 unit from Limerick police assisted in the search but could not locate Marks, according to a press release.
Anyone with information on Marks’ whereabouts is being asked to call the Lower Pottsgrove department at 610-326-1508. Once found, Greenwood said, Marks is expected to be charged with leaving the scene of an accident and possibly other offenses.
Injured was a passenger in Marks’ car, Stephen Montalbano, 33, also of East Pikeland; and a second driver in the incident, Carlie Ludwig, 22, of Pottstown. They were treated on the scene by Goodwill Ambulance (above) and then transported to Pottstown Memorial Medical Center.
Greenwood said Lower Pottsgrove police were dispatched to the 2900 block of Linfield Road, on a sharp and steep curve southeast of the quarry entrance, arrived to find the accident on the road’s east side (below). His subsequent investigation, the release stated, identified Marks as the driver who was allegedly speeding in a 2012 Honda Civic east on Linfield when the car “crossed over” and collided head-on into a 2001 Honda CRV being driven by Ludwig.
Both vehicles were severely damaged, and Sanatoga firefighters used absorbent material to contain spilled liquids (below). The road was closed by Ringing Hill and Sanatoga fire police during the investigation and clean-up. The cars were towed from the scene by Sanatoga Auto Body.
