Crash closes U.S. 202 for hours

Police seeking information from witnesses

Accident investigators want to speak with the occupants of this Honda pilot, which was photographed by in-car police video.


Police are looking for information related to an accident that closed northbound U.S. 202 in East Goshen Township for more than three hours today.

The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department reported that officers responded at 12:01 p.m. to the northbound lanes of U.S. 202, just north of the Boot Road interchange, and found the female driver of 2004 Honda CR-V trapped in the vehicle, which had rolled after colliding with a guide rail.

Police said the woman, who is pregnant and was wearing a seatbelt, was extricated by Goshen Fire Company and then transported to Paoli Hospital, where she is being evaluated. Police, who did not identify her, said no other information was available on her condition.

Witnesses at the scene reported that the Honda was northbound on 202 in the right lane when a 2011 white Honda Pilot entered into the right lane from the left, forcing the woman to take evasive action to avoid a collision. The Honda Pilot initially pulled over and stopped on the shoulder, left the scene, and has since contacted investigators, police said.

Investigators from the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department want to speak with any possible witnesses, who should call police at 610-692-5100. Police said they were assisted by West Goshen Police, Goshen Fire Company, and the East Whiteland Fire Company. Northbound U.S. 202 drivers were detoured onto Route 100 until U.S. 202 northbound was reopened at 3:15 p.m., police said.
