Confused Elderly Man Injures Wife and Daughter in Delco Car Accident

On September 12, 2011, a confused elderly man injured his wife and daughter in a Pennsylvania auto accident.

At about 9:30 a.m., 89-year-old George Metzger was waiting in the driver’s seat of his Buick – with the vehicle stopped in reverse – while his wife and daughter were getting in.

The elderly man mistakenly applied the accelerator as his daughter, 62, was helping his wife, 85-year-old Rose Metzger, into the vehicle. Both of the women were seriously injured in the accident.

The daughter sustained trauma to her head and chest and was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) by air.

Rose Metzger was transported to HUP by ambulance with injuries to her lower torso. She was listed to be in fair condition.

George Metzger was also taken to the hospital for evaluation.

This accident is currently under investigation; however, no changes are expected to be filed.

The Bucks County accident attorneys at Cordisco & Saile wish full recoveries to both Mrs. Metzger and her daughter.
