Teen Airlifted in Swamp Pike Accident
A female PJP2 student has been identified as the driver taken by MedEvac helicopter to ICU.
A Pope John Paul II High School student was one of the drivers involved in a major accident Friday on Swamp Pike.
The school said on its Facebook page Friday night that senior Maddie Maurer was in stable condition in the ICU following the three-car accident near the grounds of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish, where students were in the process of being dismissed from school when the crash took place at about 2:45 p.m.
Chief William Albany of the Limerick Township Police Department said that the crash involved two female drivers, later identified by the school as Maurer and fellow student Meghan Kugler, traveling westbound on the roadway, and an as-yet unidentified male driver in a truck headed eastbound.
