Witnesses Come Forward in West Norriton Accident

Authorities say they have a clearer picture of what happened, but the 50-year-old victim is still in critical condition.

According to The Times Herald, Chief Robert Adams' call for witnesses to to step forward was answered.

“We did get a couple of witnesses describing the accident,” Chief Adams told the Herald. “We have a clearer idea of what happened.”

Authorities say a 31-year-old Norristown woman in a dark blue Dodge Caliber was driving east on West Main when she hit a 50-year-old West Norriton man as he was crossing the street at 6:50 a.m. on Tuesday, May 1. The woman reportedly stopped at the scene and called police to report the accident, but no one else stopped to help or called anyone.

According to the Herald, the man was still listed in critical condition on Wednesday having suffered a skull and multiple rib fractures, a collapsed lung and a broken left leg and shoulder.

West Norriton Police provided still photos of the scene to spur any potential witness to act. Authorities are still investigating and are asking anyone who may have seen the accident or have any information about the incident to call them at 610-630-0977.
