North Charlotte Accident Likely Due to Wet Weather
LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – A single-vehicle accident (at top), tentatively being attributed to wet roadway conditions due to persistent rain, occurred Thursday (Sept. 23, 2021) at about 1 p.m. on the east side of the 2200 block of North Charlotte Street. The site is north of Bliem Road and at the borderline of New Hanover and Lower Pottsgrove townships. Police from both municipalities responded to the scene (below).
The car’s female driver received minor cuts and bruises during the crash, according to Lower Pottsgrove police who handled the incident.
Police reported the car, a white Toyota Camry, was traveling south on North Charlotte when it veered off the west shoulder of the road (above). It then curved back, crossed to the east side, traveled across part of a residential lawn, and came to rest amid trees and brush. The extent of damage to the car was not immediately known. A tow truck was expected to remove the vehicle.
Trucks, equipment, and volunteers from the fire companies and fire police units of Ringing Hill, Sanatoga, and New Hanover Township Fire and Rescue also responded. Because emergency vehicles occupied the north lane of North Charlotte for a time, fire police detoured northbound traffic east onto Bliem and then north on parallel roads.
Montgomery County emergency dispatchers released units from the scene about 25 minutes after their arrival.
