Serious Accident Closes Swede Road in East Norriton

Emergency personell are on the scene for a rescue operation.

According to the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety's live incident feed, authorities responded to the area of Swede Road and Evergreen Avenue at approximately 7:51 p.m. for a serious auto accident that required a rescue of at least one victim.

Details are few, but a witness on the scene provided Norristown Patch with pictures of what appears to be a two-car collision. One of the vehicles reportedly hit a utility pole.

Some residents in the direct vicinity reported via Facebook of having lost power for a few minutes around 8 p.m., but it is unclear if the two incidents are connected.

Swede Road is reportedly closed while emergency personell clear the scene.

Norristown Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.
