Car Fire, Motorcycle Accident Both Fatal
A car fire in Camden overnight killed one man, hospitalized another, local TV stations are reporting. Both men are estimated to be in their early 20s. They were in a Honda Civic that caught fire near 31st and Carmen Streets. A nearby empty car also caught on fire. The survivor was taken to Cooper University Hospital, then transferred to a Philadelphia hospital. Early Word is awaiting word back from Camden police.
About 10:30 last night, a notorious stretch of Rt. 422 claimed two more lives, as a motorcycle lost control West Pottsgrove, Montgomery County. The man operating the bike was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital, where he died. The female passenger died at the scene. No helmets were found. Speed may have been a factor, but police are still investigating, said detective Steve Ziegler "Plenty" of fatalities, especially to motorcyclists, have occurred at the same curve in the highway, which has a speed limit of 55, he said. Names are being withheld pending notification of kin.
