A Bucks County car accident involving a single vehicle claims the lives of two people after the driver loses control of the car and slams into a guardrail. The incident took place at approximately 3:00 on Sunday morning, October 30, 2011, in Middletown Township.
According to local authorities, the storm-related crash occurred when the driver of a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero, traveling southbound on Interstate 95, lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a guardrail. The force of the impact sent the vehicle into the embankment where it rolled over and landed on the westbound shoulder of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The driver has been identified as Richard Nagbe, 25, of Upper Derby. Unfortunately, Mr. Nagbe and his female passenger, Dehkontee Kpou, 31, of Philadelphia, lost their lives in the single-vehicle crash. Reports indicate that the interstate was covered in ice, which may have played a role in the fatal wreck.
The deadly, early-morning Bucks County car accident is still under investigation by local authorities as they try to determine what caused Mr. Nagbe to lose control of his vehicle.
This is a tragic accident, and we extend our thoughts and condolences to the victims’ family and friends during this difficult time.
