A Bensalem car accident involving a single vehicle left three injured, including a store employee, after a car slammed through the front window of a local business. The incident took place at approximately 10:30 AM on Monday, April 18, 2012, in the 2300 block of Bristol Road in Bucks County.
According to reports, an unidentified 78-year-old man lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the front of a Hallmark Store on Bristol Road near Hulmeville Road. Police believe that the man may have accelerated forward, causing his car to jump the curb and slam into the wall, front window, and a display case located in the store.
Rescue crews transported the driver, his wife and a store employee to Aria Health’s Torresdale campus in Philadelphia. They were all reported as having minor injuries. Their identities were not immediately made known.
Workers had the front window to the store boarded up by the afternoon. The store’s main structure was reported as being sound.
The single-vehicle Bensalem car accident remains under investigation by local authorities. There was no initial indication as to what caused the 78-year-old to slam into the Hallmark store.
This is a terrible accident, and we wish all three victims a speedy recovery.
