A Levittown car accident involving two vehicles, including a police cruiser, leaves two people injured. The incident took place at approximately 4:00 AM on Friday, May 11, 2012, at the intersection of Tyburn Road and New Falls Road in Bucks County.
According to reports, the driver of a Mercedes Benz crossed the double-yellow centerline at Tyburn and New Falls roads and slammed into a police cruiser head-on. The officer has been identified as 28-year-old Matthew Killeen.
Officer Killeen, who has been on the force for three years, was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he was treated for injuries sustained in the collision. His injuries include a broken pelvis and broken hip. His condition was not immediately made known.
Rescue crews also transported the unidentified driver to St. Mary’s Medical Center. It was unclear as to the extent of the person’s injuries.
Morning commuters were inconvenienced for several hours as crews closed all lanes along Tyburn Road to clear the accident scene.
The two-vehicle Levittown car accident remains under investigation by local authorities. There was no early indication as to how the early-morning accident occurred.
This is a terrible incident, and we wish both victims a speedy recovery during this unfortunate time.
